      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BTN with Q :diamond: Q :heart:
      1 fold, MP calls $0.10, 1 fold, Hero raises to $0.50, 2 folds, MP calls $0.40

      Flop: ($1.15) 3 :club: 4 :diamond: K :diamond: (2 players)
      MP bets $0.20, Hero raises to $0.93, MP folds

      I am not too sure I am confident about my raise there on the flop. I can recall from memory a PS coach declaring in his videos that he treats mindonks as checks so I just thought it makes sense to protect/get value from FDs and weaker pairs.

      But I guess that calling there is perfectly fine and should even be the preferred choice since, as you have said before, such minbets can also easily be TP type of hands and even monsters.
