      Hi you have to raise this flop, it is super drawy with a straight draw and a flush draw out there.

      Besides he also needs to hit something on turn and river which does not complete his draw to still pay you off, otherwise he won't.

      Also he is like min-raising pre-flop. You can hope he has a strong hand like JJ+ here and hence just start raising the flop.

      If you raise flop, you can get all-in faster and therefore you earn more money.

      Villain already showed strength and he will not fold an overpair there imo though his bet looks weak but then you capitalize dead money :D

      so I raise to $5 and shove Turn (Because then the POt >> Your stack)

      he is not folding really overpair on that board, so before there would come scare cards I also like raising flop and getting all-in.

      We fold obv.

      Nah we can never fold this pre-flop after sb min-raises... min-raise indicates a good hand, button must have a really good hand too to shove over this and so many times he won't have since he just went for a steal.

      Calling this is highly +EV since we will most of the time be in a multiway flop with one guy having JJ+ and the other having A with strong kicker or another premium hand. Our implieds are major on the limit.
