      This is probably one of my worst hands...
      I was planning to check raise flop but the minbet worried me. He had minbet a previous hand down to the river with a set. I thought he could very well have 2 pair or even AT. So I decided to just play the draw cheaply, which made for a tough river decision.

      Also, if I bet flop and he calls, how do I play turn and river? I don't think I gain much information that way.

      I wouldn't bet that flop, too drawy, it's very likely he hit something and you're OOP. I would even fold against a decent bet, but since he min-bet it's OK to call the flop and turn.

      On the river, with just the reads you provided, I sincerely don't know what to do. I'd probably choose the safe side, check and call a reasonable sized raise.

      Bet Flop, turn player-dependent, but I'd often check and reevaluate. River sucks, but I think I'd fold - looks like he's very strong to me given he raises this board.
