      Pre-flop: (6 players) Hero is UTG with Q:diamond: A:heart:
      [color:#cc0000]Hero raises to $0.4[/color], 2 folds, Button calls, 2 folds.

      Flop: 5:heart: A:diamond: 7:club: ($0.95, 2 players)

      River: 9:spade: ($7.09, 1 player + 1 all-in - Main pot: $7.09)

      Final pot: $7.09
      [color:#ffffff]Hero Shows Qd Ah[/color]
      [color:#ffffff]Button Shows As 7d[/color]

      In my experience so far at NL10 min raises have very rarely been bluffs... is it still worth pushing my TPGK?

      Usually when someone miniraises they got a better hand. I'd just call and try to control pot. If he bets again on the turn, depending on his bet size, I can call or fold. I think that's the best way to deal with a raise on the flop, donks like to miniraise with sets or two pairs.

      ya i agree with you tosh.

      The reason I pushed is because I had continuation bet very frequently and some people were starting to play back at me more. I should definitely have just called though, because if he was bluff raising me, then he would fold to my push anyways, so a call would be just as good.

      I agree with Tosh, and here I would call flop and push any turn because villain is shortstacked.

      Nh. Bu is shortstack and would call your shove with any pair/draw.
