      The board is really dry your either way ahead or way behind. I hate folding to min-raises and all his bets are so annoying, I turn into a calling station most of the time here due to his bet sizes, but you should probably find a fold somewhere, definately on the river anyway.

      I think if I still call turn river is a must fold.Even on turn you can fold You are only beating a bluff I think. But I think he`s not that likely to bluff you here and most of the time has you beat.

      I would fold flop or turn, against aggro guy I prob fold turn. Against nit I prob fold flop.

      This is a typical case of getting married to a hand that you raised pf and hit on the flop.

      As someone stated, minraise on dry board=trouble.

      Without any reads you should b/f flop, since they have there a lot of times set or two pair.
      I think he won´t bluff there river often enough that you can call him down, so when called flop and turn, yuo should fold river (he won´t valuebet there worse Ax hand).
