      Hero wins 71 BB

      10 hands VPiP 50.

      Is it ok to fold to min raise? It is quite possible that he has 98, or set, but also TT, JJ, fd, OESD, A9 etc. It is so bad when I am OOP, then he can take free card, so is it a good option 3bet? And should I play click back, or raise him 3x his bet size?
      Is bet on river ok, he probably had fd, OESD, or 9x, 8x, TT which might call.

      After just 10 hands you can't say much about him... Because of the playability I would often fold to a raise on the flop but given the small sizing I am tempted to call. I don't think he does this with draws too often. Minraising here is a sort of fishy play and fish usually call down with draws, they don't raise. This means his range will be nutted hands, maybe combo draws and random bluffs/spazzy thin value raises like the one he had here. After you call and he checks turn I think he does not have the nutted hands in his range so you can be confident AA is good and it remains a question of vbetting or check/calling. We can't say for sure what he is more likely to do (bluff or call) specifically but in general people call more than they bluff so I would also take the vbet line like you.
