      Hello maheepsangari,

      Most likely I would make a small raise already on the flop and protect my hand. He wont bluff much anyways if he is min-betting like this. He could have draws there and even weaker hands which pay you. Could also raise it bigger on the turn.

      As played the river is kind of close since we just beat bluff there and without any specific reads I might even fold there. :)

      Best Regards.
