      I played some hands today that make me wonder how to interprete minraises. Like this one here. What can such a minraise mean by this loose but not so aggressive villain?

      @edit: it's the very next hand after the one I posted here, same villain:
      NL5 ATo against a loose player

      NH.Whatever he had you usually can't continue with pp 22 without improvement and u have only 2outs.
      Board: Ts Td 9h

      equity win tie pots won pots tied
      Hand 0: 36.830% 35.61% 01.22% 119162 4079.00 { 2c2h }
      Hand 1: 63.170% 61.95% 01.22% 207300 4079.00 { 22+, A2s+, K9s+, Q9s+, J9s+, T8s+, 98s, A2o+, KTo+, QTo+, J9o+, T9o }

      Those minraises are such annoying thing :O .Usually they can mean nothing- underpair, II-IIIrd pair,bluff on dangerous board or in contrary very strong slowplaying hand when opp hopes that u play back with big reraise.
      You have a bit small sample size (31h),he is loose looks like passive,can be tight postflop.Low aggression so this can be hand.
      Good luck :)

      just fold in this situation . even if you are ahead now it will be very hard for you to continue on any turn and you dont want to invest more money with this hand oop
