      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3:
      $4.94
      CO:
      $2.83
      BU (Hero):

      MP1:
      $0.94
      MP2:
      $2.03


      Preflop: Hero is BU with Q, Q.
      UTG1 calls $0.02, 3 folds, MP3 raises to $0.04, CO folds, Hero raises to $0.12, 2 folds, UTG1 calls $0.10, MP3 calls $0.08.

      Flop: ($0.39) J, K, 8 (3 players)
      UTG1 checks, MP3 bets $0.02, Hero raises to $0.26, UTG1 folds, MP3 calls $0.24.

      Turn: ($0.91) 6 (2 players)

      River: ($0.95) 3 (2 players)
      MP3 bets $0.47, Hero folds, MP3 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.95.

      I see this sort of play a lot on these low stakes and I can't quite figure out what it means. Villain will minbet flop/turn and then bet substantially larger on the next street if they got called.

      From my experience I think they're usually on a draw. The reason why I called the turn was because I'm now drawing to the second nut flush and I didn't want to get shoved on by a made flush.

      I'm not sure why I folded the river but like I said, I couldn't really put him on anything so I decided to play it safe.

      Hello thebaptist333,

      Preflop: Against those min-raises use a bit bigger raise yourself. I would raise to 4x, so $0,16. :)
      Postflop: Raising on the flop multiway is already kind of close spot. Do we even get much value there from a lot worse? Just FDs I would say, plus we have another opponent behind us. Therefore is kind of questionable but as long you took the thin value and protection then I like your play on turn & river. He most likely tried to induce you raise again on the turn.

      Best Regards.
