      this was quite a nice little win, and im guessing the guy tried to bluff a failed draw in the end, though was curious to see if any1 else would fold under those conditions.

      Hello foxicoxi,

      Welcome to the English NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Preflop: Calling isn't going to be a very good idea here while having couple of guys behind us. Rather 3bet it and reevaluate the further action.

      As played
      Postflop: Why would you ever just min-raise here? If you want to raise it at least do it normally, I would recommend you reading the articles about raise/bet sizes. But as played not much to comment on the turn.

      Best Regards.
