      He is very passive so a min raise on the flop could be a sign of strencth, but still my hand was good against his overall range. On the Tu when he pots it is quite ugly, he acted pretty fast and I don't think he ever bluffs here, so I think I should have folded the Tu.

      What line would you take?

      You should find the fold button on the turn, maybe on flop. His min-raise refers to a set or two pairs, so you can't beat his range. You could try 3-bet min/fold there, which I don't recommend, though.

      As played, fold to turn bet and bet 0.40 pre-flop.

      I agree to CPallo, min-raise the flop and pot bet the turn looks very strong, and you are very likely to face a river shove when your opponent is taking that line. So unless planing to call the river for some reason (which in this case i think is a bad idea), the turn fold should be the best choice.

      Hello BogdanDr,

      Calling flop is still fine vs the min-raise but I don't like to continue on the turn. You are more often facing a stronger hand there and which means we can't really earn profit with Call turn and hope that he Checks the river, which ain't gonna happen often enough.

      Best Regards.
