      I'd call his check-min raise on the flop and re-evaluate on the turn. Our hand could very well be drawing dead and if he bets again, without us improving, I think folding is the best course of action.

      In this hand, I don't think a call would be good because there are too many turncards that are awful.
      Basically, a 6,9,J,Q and K. That's 20 cards! And on top of that, he could have a spade draw or shove a spade turn with only 1 spade. He's probably shoving any turn first-in.

      I think this situation sucks because of his stacksize. You have to make a decision right here and the board sucks but you still have TPTK.

      Meh, with the money already in the pot and the amount villain has behind here I think I'm just shoving to but it might be too spewy here.

      shove there is fine
      you´re ahead his min-raising range and he´d call with worse hands

      Isn't this really player dependent? fish can min-raise for so many reasons, including to keep someone in the pot when they (fish) flop the nuts.
      I'm not sure about it as it is player dependent but many players can min-raise with monsters here.
