      Opponent stats 40/4 AF:1,3 WTSD:52 W$SD:42 raise flop cbet:20(2/10) after 58 hands.

      What do you think? I called on flop, because it's min raise and I have backdoors.

      Hello,

      Preflop raising is ok.

      On the flop I'd bet $0.55-$0.6.
      Those minraises are very bad overall. We are getting very good odds, but on the other hand we are just having medium-strength hand.
      I think that we could just call given the good odds and reevaluate on the turn considering that we are IP and also have some backdoors.
      If we were OOP without backdoors I'd just fold it.

      On the turn calling is fine.

      The river card isn't good at all but I'd call and make a note. Also we need to be good only 1 out of 8 times so I think calling is easy.

      Best,
      Plamen
