      kind of baffling, I think overall.
      but here's what I am wondering about
      Pre-flop
      1) I rarely 3B. was this a good spot/hand to 3B, or should I have called and taken a cheap flop?

      2) I rarely 3B, but I think this one should have been a bit bigger, since I would be OOP.
      28 cents? more?

      Flop - I have TPTK on a twotone board. I guess I have a backdoor to the wheel, but no hope for diamonds.
      I bet 3/4 pot.
      he minraises me, and all I can guess is pocket pair say 7 thru J or flush draw.
      obviously, I am not worried about him having Kx.
      I wonder if I should get it in here?

      Turn - naturally, the flush draw comes in, but I bet out
      given that I bet/called, should I have just shoved?
      given my stack size, I could not have bet more than 1/2 w/o shoving if I was trying to price out single spades

      does betting here make any sense at all?

      this is what I hate about $4NL - normally, I'd be an idiot to get it in after that turn, wouldn't I?

      what was he thinking on the F & T?
      that his aggression would win the day?
      that the board would scare me off?
      it probably should have - I was glad I did not have a decision to make after that river!
      or was he not thinking at all?

      Hello William340,

      Preflop: Vs such min-raises you could easily raise to 4x.
      Flop: Although I don't like the idea of your Call here vs the min-raise. Rather just get it in, we don't want to see a flush to arrive.

      As played
      Turn: Why donk? Rather let him Bet with bluffs if you called on the flop.

      He had a TP, so why shouldn't he go broke? :D

      Best Regards.

      unfortunately, my play is nearly as bad as his!
