      I know i could have raised the flop, if i raise the flop here and get 3bet do i fold or play for stacks? On the river should I be folding a lot more or are there enough 4x and overpairs in his range to make it ok? Opponent is 35/35/0 over 17 hands in zoom.

      I'm no pro, but here's my 2 cents:

      I don't think your hand is strong enough to play from the SB. On the flop you can raise but you'll have to fold to a reraise. Calling is also fine then. And I think same for the turn.
      River is a though spot because there's a possibility for a full house.. I'm just gonna leave it to the judge :D

      Hey DavidNegranu,

      Preflop defend is fine vs a min-raise imo.

      Soon as you see that paired board you should know that your implied odds are damaged. This means it's better to capitalize on your fold-equity. Donking flop is a good option following up with barrels on decent turn cards.

      As played not convinced turn is a mandatory call. Just as a general rule you want to be super careful about drawing to non-nut hands. All of your outs are tainted here.

      Think river is just super-borderline. Depends entirely on opponent. Some guys will just flat a 4x in which case it's a clear river fold. Given both bet/calling and bet/folding are questionable, might be fine to just check/call. This river situation basically sums up why you can fold the turn.
