      Hey Demarcohsp,

      so we assume we do play against an unknown player?

      I like your sizing on the turn. Makes JJ,TT to call again. AQ should just call flop,turn,and river most of the time. c/c flop, c/minraise turn I think we can absolut easy fold here. Turn just brings the straight for 56s. You beat just AQ,KQ,QJ and I dont think they will play c/minraise turn ever here(Maybe AQ....). Most of the time you are beat imo against AA,QQ who played weak to the turn. You loose against 77,88,QQ,AA

      I dont find many handcombinations we are ahead of:( AQ? No draws, I dont think villian is able to play that way as a total bluff so I would fold :)

      Do you take the min open as a sign of a fish? (this is mostly why I posted the hand)

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      Preflop: You can never be sure cause that might be also a misclick, though usually if he continues doing that then it applies to it. I'd treat it as just double-limp and start raising up.
      Postflop: Vs those min-raises I'd also play the same way, not much you have beat on the turn anyways and I don't really see him raising this way his draws nor Qx hands. Sizing most likely is also the best to give him an option to call loose.

      Best Regards.
