      I acted as if his minraise was basically a limp. I gave up after the flop call. The board was not really coordinated, but I could see a lot of hands calling the flop as either overcards, straight draws, or even weak pairs looking to improve.
      I think my mistake was not two-barrelling. But I didn't want to get it all in and the villain was going to call with a huge range.
      Thoughts...?

      i would check back flop, as 864 would seem to hit villain's range a decent amount of the time.

      as played i would barrel turn vs all his weak 1 pair hands.

      if we had stats it might be different

      Hi PhoenixPhreak,

      Even though you act as if it was a limp I still don't think we should make it that big.

      We can make it between 3x-4x and be happy with our sizing. The value of our hand is mainly in stealing the pot preflop and we don't need to make it huge given the action so far.

      On the flop I think we should either shove to gain max fold equity or check down and act on later streets.

      Best regards.
