      Ok, this isn't a hand I played, it's just a hand I saw while reviewing hands in poker tracker. The shortie raises to four times the BB with AK preflop.Gets called by the BB.

      He hits nothing on the flop but has two overcards. The BB sticks out a 1/8 of the pot bet and the shortie just called. If I was in this situation, I probably would've raised to 60c. If called I would've C/f the rest of the way. Would this have been the correct play considering the small size of the bet on the flop? If he had bet more on the flop then I would've folded.

      Yes, these minbets on the flop say nothing.
      You can just make your standard cbet here, what would be 2/3pot, so $0.60 is good.

      So what you're saying is all correct!

      Hey Cersei,

      you're right about the minraise thing - I personally just raise them so technically I make a thing one can call 'continuation raise'. But if you have any reads on villain's microbets, you can follow any other line.

      For example, if you know villain will bet very small while having top pair, call him and bet only if you hit one of your overs.
