      Your push is a bit premature. Look, if you did bet the full pot size ($0.35) and he still minraises you ($0.7) it looks as a natural continuation to shove $1.8 stack. I don't think your move was wrong, it was probably still ok, but there's a little better way to handle the situation.

      As for his minraise range - of course, he might have a made straight, but he can also semibluff with oesd or fd or have slowplayed ace. It's perfectly ok to make a move here with 2 pairs.
