      Opponent is some reg with few hands on atm of the hand.

      How do you interpret this mraises on the flop? I personally put the opponent on a weak draw and in this case planned to barrel on any equity or call one barrel on pair card. After getting a read I would become much more aggressive basically trying to take the pot down on any card.

      That minraise looks weak. I like 3betting the flop a little bit better, but calling is fine. As played, I definitely bet the river, especially that card. It's pretty hard for him to call. He can have a flush, but very rarely. Usually they minraise with gutshots or some weak pairs like 77.
