      I think that it is not a good move to call the raise on the flop and then fold to a bet on a blank turn.

      I don't like your betsizing on the flop. When I 3bet for the first time I want it to sting so I cbet big, and I get a ton more folds than if I cbet about half pot in which case they float all the time with whatever garbage they have and the hand becomes very hard to play.

      With that said, as played I would just fold to the minraise. You have no reads so you don't know what he defends 3bets with. It could be a 5 trying to milk you, it could be a T trying to see where he's at, could be a flush draw. So either shove or fold, and I don't really like shoving at this point, although you will have a crazy image.

      Early on, I would c-bet bigger because with your small bet you might have induced a raise by him but you don't know if he is capable of doing this and you have some showdown value.

      Given the tiny raise, our backdoorflush and (discounted) 2pair/trips outs, you have to call that tiny raise but I would fold to a bigger raise because most of the time you are in a way behind/slightly ahead situation.
