      I raise the turn and call a shove. I wanna get it in here as a 4 is unlikely and I have the best hand in the majority of cases.

      so the flop minraise doesn't indicate a high probability of me being behind?
      why? i think i'm missing something.

      It depends on the donkey you're playing against, some donkeys do miniraise to get value of their hands (even if it is only a TP) and others do it to make the opponent fold.

      On the flop I'd play like you did, on turn a raise would be good to see where you're at, but considering the stack of your opponent (which by the way is a donkey stack) I'd call a shove.
