      Ok on the flop I thought he could only be betting with anything, and I think a raise would scare him away.

      On the turn with a minibet again it shows weakness and I think a raise would scare him (not sure about a miniraise though).

      On the river maybe I should have miniraised, so I still could get value of a pair of 8 or T for example...

      What do you think?

      IMO you cant think too hard about scaring away the opposition, especially since you don't have a hand strong enough to slowplay.

      I'd raise the flop for sure, since tp pair with ok kicker needs protection. On the turn I would raise as well to try to build a larger pot buy a call is probably ok too since you now have a strong enough hand to think about slow playing. The problem with slowplaying medium stength hands is that you probably wont get action on later streets unless your opponent caught up with you and you lose value from worse hands that might have called your bets anyways.

      I don't think you need protection on the flop, as there are no draws except
      for T9. overcards are unlikely to hit him.
      I would just make a normal 3/4 potsize-ish raise on the turn, hoping that he has some kind of hand he can call with.
      if he was minbetting with trash, then you weren't going to get any value anyway.

      Raise flop. Let him pay when he's behind. If he has nothing, you will get nothing either way.

      You can start off by raising or folding pf. that way the pot is bigger, you ahve the initiative and you can bet for value and players would often call with worse hands.
      I´d raise turn. No need to give him free card.
