      Few unclear thing about this hand:

      I was not sure how to respond to that preflop miniraise, so I just made mini re-raise. Was it ok or should I fold, 3x raise, call?

      Wanted to make check-raise on turn, bet later I realized that I could give free card to opponent, since there are possible fd's and sd's.

      Calling villains push was ok?

      I think i would fold here vs unknown

      but if I have a read that he's loose, I would raise 3x the minraise before the flop, fold to a re-raise and if he calls push any flop


      anyway, the way you played it preflop, you should have definetly pushed on the flop, because you had less than 1.5 potsize left in your stack and you don't want to give a potential flush draw odds to call

      First, you have to fold this hand preflop after a raise.

      As played bet more on the flop, around $1.50, so that you have an easy all-in on any Turn, even if another spade comes up.
