      Guy leads flop pretty small which I think is a PP probably between 88-JJ or some kind of draw 89s/85s/45s. I dont really see much value in raising here so I decide to just call.

      Turn completes 85s I think he continues with pair and straight draws here and still all of his pairs 88-JJ. I decide to call again. Can I eve justify raising here for free show down?

      His river bet is small but for give price i dont think I can fold? It's pretty close:

      Board: K:spade: 7:heart: 6:club:  4:diamond:  8:club:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    38.18%  32.73%   5.45% { KdTh }
      UTG+1  61.82%  56.36%   5.45% { JJ-66, KTs+, 98s, 85s, 54s, KTo+ }

      Hello Meemawuk,

      Against such min-bets I'd just raise being even in a HU pot. If he decides to 3bet us on flop then we can still very easily get it away since it will be most likely a trap.

      But well, river is a spot actually where you can even consider folding. :) Since he can't really have a lot worse hands there, couple of 2pairs/sets are possible and even straight is possible.

      Best Regards.
