      Preflop: I meant to raise bigger ~0.20, somehow misclicked or something.

      Postflop: my own line makes no sense and is terrible. However, it is hard for me to find the optimal line anyway. I don't want to fold against a minraise but neither do I want to go broke against him while being so deepstacked. I do not want to give away free cards either. In this particular case I should maybe just simply call the minraise and check the turn?

      Hello Avatars91,

      Preflop: Being vs fish + being deep + being OOP, I would definitely raise a lot bigger, ~$0,20 at least. :) But okey, good that you miss-clicked. :D

      As played
      Postflop: Yep, doesn't really make sense to pick such a line. I mean why do you donk the turn? Then rather get it in on the flop! :( Most likely vs such a station wouldn't even be wrong to just 3bet there.

      Best Regards.

      I had great difficulty putting him on a hand. Since he is somewhat passive -> what hands do you put him on once he minraises this flop? I do not feel too comfortable going broke being 150BB deep.

      He could have anything I guess, starting from just GS and ending with very strong range. Especially when he has very wide range.

      The problem there is that there ain't going to be many cards what help you but rather a lot of cards which ain't helping you.

      So basically 3bet/pAI is the safest / easiest option?

      Yes, I would say so. With something like A:cAx we could consider even to Bet/Call.

      This looks like an interesting line. What is your plan on future streets?

      Depends size and stuff. On blank and smaller bets we of course continue and even more towards when FD completes cause we still would have the nutFD and overpairs.
