      Hello,

      Preflop I don't really like limping here. Do we know anything about the player? With some information we can go for a raise here.

      On the flop I would bet pot size here.
      When he minraises, I like 3betting.

      As played, we can't really fold the turn when he shoves so calling is fine.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Isn't in micros minraise always nuts?


      Why should i raise such a weak hand vs unknown player? Does it profitable to raise with such a hand if i know he will call anyways?

      You should be aware of his postflop tendencies. For example, if he calls a lot of preflop but folds a lot postflop, then raising it would be fine.

      In general, with this hand it would be better to raise and play with the initiative when you could put some pressure on his range, rather than just limping it.
      Of course, if you don't feel comfortable, you could just fold.

      I can't really say that when he minraises our flop bet it is the nuts, and on this board it could be pretty much anything and since he is on the BB he could have quite a lot worse flushes as well.
