      [/spoiler]

      I played this hand completely wrong i feel. min 3bets always confused me.

      No stats on the guy as i haven't fixed HM with the patch.

      I think first off i should have 4bet pre. especially with the BB cold calling but min 3 bet usually means a monster on NL2. so i didn't wanna to play for stacks preflop

      but somehow i felt that sb only had the J on the turn and i was ahead so i shoved the turn.

      Maybe create some fold equity?

      what would have been a better way to play this?

      Hello TeddyTaiwan,

      Don't get your play at all either. :D You are not 4betting preflop but you are raising the flop to isolate yourself vs strong made hands. I'd rather 4bet preflop where the guy could at least go broke with AK or something similar which most likely postflop wont pay you.

      Also what's the purpose of the min-raise?

      Best Regards.

      Will happen time to time. :D Try to make at least some notes for yourself and try to recognize those guys who min-raise with wide range.
