      BB was unknown in general but seemed like a TAG player. We had a hand before where he raised preflop, I squeezed, he made a 2.4xish 4bet and I folded as I was bluffing.

      Preflop: I hate these min3bets and I really don't know how to play against them. In this case I opted to call given the great pot odds.

      Flop: I completely missed the flop and he checked into me. This seemed like a trap (as players who min3bet like to trap usually) so I just check behind.

      Turn: I hit a pair and opted to just call his low bet. I had a 2nd nut FD and outs to trips/2pair so my odds are quite good.
      I also have good implied odds as I'm in position. It's also possible that he's trapping so I can make him pay if I hit.

      River: I don't improve, so not much value in raising. However, I think I have good odds to call a 1/2 pot bet on the river. It is possible that he played JJ/AK this way.

      Hi Dawidas,

      Preflop: looks fine. Calling is by far the better option in my opinion. We keep the pot small and play IP.

      Postflop: I think that we should bet/fold the flop and try to take it down.

      As played I think you can raise/fold turn for thin value versus AsX or other spade hands or even Qx.
