      I know that I needed to fold when he pushed in...I'm aware that I made a dumb call. My question is whether or not I should have 3 bet his min-reraise on the flop. I did it to see where I stood in the hand (unfortunately when he gave me the answer I didn't listen X( ) Also because I had been running hot for a while, and raising many pots. I thought there was a good chance that his reraise was a pure bluff to push me off a bluff.

      bet/call on the flop, reevaluate turn. You dont have a very strong hand, and you dont have to make big pots with medium strong hands.As played,depends on stats - shove from TAG/LP is fold, from LAG is call.

      The more you see of minraises at lower limits, the more you will realise that it is the signal that someone with a big hand wants to be tricky. Take advantage of this, and let go pretty easily.

      The only way to exploit their bad play is to call the minraise, and hope for your miracle set. If it comes about, you will surely stack them, because they are no longer folding.

      But mostly just fold, IMO.

      bet/call flop, no need to 3-bet and then trying to get it all-in or fold it.
      If he has draw then you´re good chape, if he has set, then you´ve 2 outs, either way you´ll find out that on the turn.
