      It's a move that drives me up the wall. Playing NL10 and your opponent likes to use the minbet (.10) even when the pot is something like .80 or more. Often my hand goes no where and the turn and river look like blanks, but the guy make a normal sized bet on the river. It's just silly! Anyways, any advice on dealing with these betting types post-flop?
      (I usually fold on the flop if I have absolutely nothing and there's more than one opponent in the hand, btw)

      You should treat them as normal raises IMO. If you're drawing and villain gives you odds to call, then call. If you think you have enough FE, than you can raise it, because most times villain will be weak. If you have a strong hand that you have to protect or build the pot, then just raise it. Sometimes you may just call it down, it really depends on the scenario presented, I think that by posting some hands on the forums you'll get more concrete answers.
