      BTN: $5.32 (53.2 bb)
      Hero (SB): $21.27 (212.7 bb)
      BB: $19.21 (192.1 bb)
      UTG: $13.06 (130.6 bb)
      MP: $4.43 (44.3 bb)
      CO: $11.89 (118.9 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q J
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, BB calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.60) Q T 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.38, BB raises to $0.76, Hero folds

      Villain is unknown.

      Pre flop is a pretty standard open.

      On the flop I make a pretty standard cbet for value as well. When he raises though, I decided to fold. Of course it is a min raise so I get great odds, and I do have some backdoor draws to go along with my top pair. Therefore, I think my fold here is way too weak, despite being out of position. Especially considering this is blind vs blind, and people do tend to go just a bit crazy in general in the blinds.

      So should I call the flop and evaluate the turn?

      I am definitely calling the minraise here.
      We are given great odds, also we do have the best hand in spots like these quite often and we do have some backdoors as well.
