      I'm not sure about my play here. I think calling the min-raise on the flop is fine, but I have doubts about my play on the turn. Do I still have to protect against the flush? As the villain raised on the flop, can I consider that he is not on a draw and play for pot control on the turn?

      Hello Elertar,

      Preflop: You can as well even raise it up. Although completing is totally fine as well.
      Postflop: Although if I played it passively preflop then I'd just Bet/Fold it right on flop. Also what's the reason for donking the turn? I mean after his min-raise rather Check it and take a look at his line.

      Best regards.

      The reason for donking the turn? I don't know... That min-raise messed up my mind. I thought that if he had a better hand he would have raised stronger. So I assumed I was still ahead and decided to raise for protection. This was kind of a mini-tilt lol.

      I'll stick with Bet/Fold on flop. Thank you!
