      cbet right? Is c/r bad here? How bad?
      I felt sure he would raise if I cbet. So I thought c/f was better but then he minbets. What does his minbet ip mean usually? Seems like bait now that I look at it again.

      i think your raise on the flop is too weak... i normally ignore the mindonkbet and just adjust my bet/raise size... i would raise to around $2 and if he calls in that spot i would try to check the hand down, though seems to be a big fish (ok 9 hands don't say too much)... there might be better spots later to stack him

      having said all that i missed that you checked the flop... i would cbet there around 2/3 to 4/5 of the pot and if he calls i would mostly shut down the action

      Just make the CBet on flop and fold to a further actions. I don't like the Check/Raise there. But ye I am often raising such donk-bets but this case is better to CBet myself.

      Best regards,

      c/c until he makes a very serious bet

      i would not check raise, you want a controlled pot since you are not probably ahead and the guy goes to showdown so often

      in this hand it is a case of trying to win a little, but more importantly lose less

      my 2 cents

      I would just c/f. C-betting against a shortstack with two overcards on the flop is a really bad idea. He would push anything.
