      I would raise on flop and call if he would push.

      push on the flop, you have less than 1.5 potsize left and 2 over cards

      The minbet looks very weak, but people on that limit like to bet less not to scare the oponents. Still, I would've pushed.

      So be glad to find a player who calls T3 suited against a raise:) You should be able to get a lot of money out of him.

      So make a note on him and try to get a seat on his table ;)

      Gremlin's right. Always make notes on people's anusual behaviour.

      It'll be a great help in future to see that this particular player minraises his draws on the flop. That way you know you should raise him if you have something, so he'd be getting bad pot odds.

      Good luck at the tables ;) .

      Probably too late to say. But i would say Raise at the flop and if he reraises then fold.

      Yep. I tend to push here, but a normal raise is also possible. Just saves a bit of yr money but if you want to play carefully it's ok.

      A push gives you the whole possible FE.

      So well played;)

      I don't see how it saves yo money. we have to raise at least 1$ that makes us pot committed. so push or fold
