      Preflop: Hero is BU with J:heart: , J:spade:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, SB calls $0.35, BB folds.

      SB checks, Hero bets $1.50, SB raises to $3.00, Hero?

      Q: What to do in such situations, facing a minraise on the turn with an overpair? All-in, or just call turn / call river to keep the pot small?

      By going all in on the turn you will only get called by better hands.
      You can either call his raise and reevaluate the river or either just fold.
      Since you are OOP if you calling his raise you will probably will have to face a big bet on the river which will be hard to call with out finding anther J.
      He C/R (which usually indicates a strong hand) you here with 44,55, a T or complete air. Without any reads or/and stats we can just put him on air here.
      It's sucks but we need to fold our OP here. :(

      Well minraises always suck of course, but if we evaluate the hand on the turn we can't see many hands we beat that raise us here anymore (because any T made trips now). Therefor it's best just to fold here, even if it feels reaaally weak.
