      Hello maheepsangari,

      On the river it's really close spot either to even Bet for value there, if you really can't lay down vs the min-raise then rather don't pick the value-spot. Cause not there are just too many 2pair type of combos which beat you. I might even pick the passive approach and Check behind.

      I mean if you Bet the river and you get min-raised. What do you expect to see in the opponents hand which you beat?

      Best Regards.
