      Hello nehmatpoker,

      Welcome to the NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Preflop: Fold it preflop against such an opponent. You can't Call it preflop while you don't even know his 3bet here which you didn't point out. So easy fold.

      As played
      Postflop: Kind of overplayed your hand here. What kind of worse hands do you expect him to continue vs your raise here? What do you achieve with the min-raise?

      Best Regards.

      His C-Bet % was really high, 91%, So I knew that a C-Bet was almost certain no matter what. He would 3-Bet pre-flop with a high pocket pair or even AK or perhaps AQ. The board was full of low cards and obviously he didn't hit anything if he had AK or AQ. I had an overpair but feared that an over card on the turn might force me to fold to a bet by him. So I re-raised to make him fold his over cards and possible combinations like AK or AQ, and if he'd have called/raised I'd assume that he has an overpair and that I'm beat and I would have given up my hand. So I min raised him to sort of get some information out of him.

      His 3-Bet percentage preflop is 5.6%. Sorry I didn't mention his stats properly, 10/8/5.6/449 C-Bet-91% (VPIP,PFR,3-Bet,Hands). Actually come to think of it, 5.6% 3-Bet range would be (TT+, ATs+, KQs, AQo+). So I thought I could bluff him off with his overcards that didn't hit the board.

      Still don't like the play. Would be fine if you would do the raise from CO/BTN but you are doing it from UTG?!? He is 3betting vs UTG?!?!? Did you even see that? :P So overplayed your hand. :)

      Yeah I didn't pay a lot of attention to the position. I didn't like my pre-flop play very much myself, but wanted to know if the stunt I pulled off on the flop was good enough. Anyway thanks for the evaluation. :)
