      What do you think would he minraise on the flop? I think the check on the turn is fine for pot control and too call a small bet on the river.

      Agree with flushmaker, checking turn is better than betting, you are probably just going to meet another minraise there. Remember, fishy opponents minraise only with superb hand, be careful with them.

      Thanks guys :)

      Speaking of min raises I run into this quite often. I'll raise preflop and get a caller or two. After the flop I will be last to act, which is a nice set up for a c-bet. Lately however I've been getting a lot of very small raises on the flop... Say if the pot is 15 cents (My raise their call and the blinds) Villain will raise to 4 cents or sometimes 2 cents. What do you think that means about villains hand? Would you still recommend to try a c-bet or would you fold or call?

      I don't mind our play against unknown.

      That min check raise is usually strong.
