      Final Pot: $0.7.
      Results follow:

      CO shows two pairs, kings and sevens(7 K).
      Hero shows two pairs, kings and sixes(Q K).

      CO wins with two pairs, kings and sevens(7 K).

      I know that on the flop I should have folded I wasn't getting the right odds to call. But the question is was the min raise call good and if I don't hit it then just fold on flop? Or should I have folded already pre-flop?
      Another scenario, let's assume that the flop was checked and then should I have bet the turn?

      Hello Krishjanis,

      Just fold the flop. Doesn't make sense to Call there while you are just putting yourself into difficult situations on further streets what exactly even happened.

      But of course for the given odds as you Called the flop it's gonna be hard for us to fold the hand.

      Best regards.
