      You lead into him strong twice and he still raised you on an overcard turn. Most people who bluff in blind battles would have raised that flop instead, i definitely think the minraise is stronger than your TPNK. Since you are out of position too, i would just pitch it.

      If this guy is still that loose over a bigger sample, you should consider considerably tightening up from the SB, as he will often call from the BB and seems aggressive enough to make your life very painful out of position when you don't hit something stronger than a good top pair.

      Hope it helps.

      yea, u dont have any hands and b/f turn is just standard, with reads other lines might be an option, but on such a drawy board just give up here, no chance of playing well on river, even if u at some times (not many) might be ahead in here..
