      Hello w4terman,

      If you have a strong draw then why you just min-raising on flop? :P I don't like the play that much. Also do you think you are gonna make better hands to fold on turn?

      We really have to ask what kind of opponent he is. If there is any worse hands which may pay us. And maybe it's even better to take free card on turn rather than go for 3streets value.

      Myself I'd raise bigger on flop ~$2 and more likely be even inclined to Check behind on turn. Since there will rarely be a lot worse hands which Call us and also he will have hard time Calling 3 streets. We don't need to protect from much either while we have a strong draw ourselves.

      Best regards.
