      Is call preflop ok with this trash hand which could put me in potential problem postflop if I hit Kx?

      Is min raise for thin value ok flop? And my raise looks more like bluff, comparing if I call. I put him on JJ, Qx, TT which bets for thin value. Bet river?

      Your flop raise might be a bit thin but definitely doable. Depends on what's your general approach here. I expect him to call some AT, AJ, AQ hands for sure on the flop, definitely flushdraws so you can potentially raise for value. I also don't expect him to bet a monster like this almost ever which makes your hand better and raising opens your options for potentially bluffing him off a few better Kx though I would not make that my main plan. Continuing from that logic, I prefer checking back the river. I think you win often enough at showdown and I can't see him folding enough better hands to make it a bet. Do you think he snaps you off with AQ?

      I expect him to call even with AT, JT, Q3, and similar, often I get called even by e.g A5s which missed flush. He is fish, according to his minraise preflop and bet so small flop, and fish dont like folding with any showdown, especially if I bet small. So when I have top pair, my usuall line against fish is bet bet bet, and I dont bluff more than cbet flop.
