      Preflop: Hero is CO with 9:spade: , 8:spade:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0,75, BU raises to $1,45, 2 folds, Hero calls $0,70.

      Flop: ($3,30) Q:spade: , 9:club: , 8:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $1,65, Hero calls $1,65.

      Villain 3B alot on BU, CB = 77%
      The Board is somewhat drawy so should i rather raise?

      Turn: ($6,60) 4:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $4, BU folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      If i don't raise should i rather just c/c again to let him bluff?

      Final Pot: $6,60

      c/r flop and then playing for stacks is better than c/c and then induce bluffs from worse hands.
      Min-raises are often very strong and if he has there AA/KK or Qx he would not really get away and you should put more money in with best hand.
      Also if he has there smt like AK I doubt he would continue barreling on turn card+ there can be ugly turn cards, like T, J, Q that either give him the best hand or freeze the action.
      If you don´t c/r flop I think better is going c/r on the turn rather than leading yourself.
