      i'm only a nooby NL10 player, but I've found that unless you have specific reads that a person min-raise bluffs, it's usually for value as they don't want to scare you away.

      But I don't really know, that's a tricky spot.

      And I'm new to these forums but on 2+2 i know you're not supposed to post results because it sways people's opinions on what you should have done.

      and no it's not a bad luck it's bad played...

      bet flop 20$ then call if he shoves.. since half of cards on turn will either kill your hand or action o.o.. if you bet about 20$~ you wont have to worry about turn card anyways..since you r commited with your stack in most of the cases..
      and now as played..turn is even more horrible then flop o.O
