      Villain is 34/9 af: 0.8 after 96 hands

      On the flop i call because i think that his range with which he would minraise has a lot of weaker queens and pocket pairs here besides sets and 2pairs. also i am getting really good odds to get 2 pair or trips my self (which, now that i think of it, is really bad reverse implied odds against 2 pairs with a Q and sets). The turn is mostly a blank in terms of his range... only KQ gets there. When he bets pot i should have folded...
      So here are my questions:
      1. Is the call on the flop ok ? or am i usually crushed there ?
      2. Considering my investment until the river, can i fold there when i improved ?

      This hand brought back something i read in a book (can't remember which) "small mistakes on early streets will cost us a lot of money on the later ones".

      Hello ZeProst,

      Well, for the given min-raise I'd most likely Call as well. Although you should definitely lay it down on turn. You don't beat there much anymore vs his pot size bet. :(

      As played the river well... as I said you were most likely already beaten on turn. :)

      Best Regards.
