      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q:heart: , Q:diamond:
      2 folds, BU calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.50, BB calls $0.40, BU calls $0.40.

      Hero bets $1.20, BB folds, BU raises to $2.40, Hero calls $1.20.

      Turn: ($6.30) 8:club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU checks.

      River: ($6.30) 4:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.00, BU raises to $4.00, Hero folds.

      Final Pot: $12.30

      Q: Should I have pushed on the flop? The minraise by BU is very strange, as it may mean anything. After his check on the turn I tried to get value of A7, for example, but actually understood that there's almost nothing I can beat (even considering the good odds).

      Reeks of a flopped set.

      Flop; min raise, with a good overpair on this board, I'm tempted to come over top of him here and three bet again.

      Turn; would have lead out again for about 1/2 pot. If he's coming over the top again, I'm tempted to fold to a perceived set. I'm most likely pushing in though after he raises.

      River; bad card, really, fills out straights again. You're bet is too small here, I would have gone 1/2 to 2/3 pot. Without more reads though, I'm not sure I'm going broke, but it would be hard not to.

      I was thinking push on the flop.

      He can't have hit a straight yet, i dout he hit a two pair with a large 5x BB preflop bet to get him off that hand, he could have a hand like trips which is a scare.
      i think he could have an overpair too (88/99) or maybe hit top pair top kicker (7As)
      At this limit i would push and go broke with this hand, you're beating a large majority of hands.

      I'd ship it on the flop. Minraises can mean absolutely anything and I can see him doing it with a top pair, pair+draw, just a draw, small overpair.. many other things than a set. I also ship it because there are many cards I don't want to see on the turn that can improve said hands, so I just want to get it in right there.
