      Nice hand!!
      This is how you treat the mindonkbets on the flop.
      You just ignore them and raise to normal cbet-size, so in this case it's a push since the cbet would be more than half of your stack.

      And don't forget to note down with what kind of hand Villain makes this move.

      Thanks for input, actualy I lost this one, he had 8c As so he got trips on river :/ One question though, it is written in SSS articles then you always go all-in when you have made hand on flop and someone bet. I thought that this is exactly the case because he was first to act and he minraised. Or is there any special exception for minraises ?

      In my opinion this kind of 1BB minbet should be regarded as he checks the flop so I would go all-in so as you did. However, I think that also good players use miniraises with strong hand in order to get a reraise from opponent but it comes with a very good read I suppose.

      Anyways, in most situations minraise or minbet still means "call" or "check" to me. Or even "i got a second/bottom pair, please fold".

      Your goal is to go all-in as soon as possible when you have a made hand.
      If Villain bets the flop in front of you in a raised pot, you always move all-in with a 15-25BB stack, simply because a raise would be more than half of your stack.

      Minraises can just be ignored. You can regard them as a "Check". Means you make a normal cbet while looking at the potsize. Which in most cases would mean moving all-in.

      Some people minbet/minraise with AA/KK or on the flop with the nuts or bottom pair. So many possibilities, that's why it's good to make a note of it. For example, if somebody always minraises AA/KK preflop, you know that you can fold your 77 when he minraises.

      Easy, I think? Your bet wasn't so big on that flop. Well played.
