      Depends on who he is really, both flatting and raising are fine tho i'd never minraise. It's fine if you can balance it with bluffs at higher stakes but at nl10 really you should just be going for maximum value the times they have a worse hand.

      The pros to just calling are that if he's bluffing he might continue figuring you weren't strong enough to raise, or he might improve to a 2nd best hand with something like KQ and valuecut himself, that usually requires an aggressive tag who has some kind of clue about ranges, or a sorta maniacal fish.

      The pros to raising it up are that if he's already betting for value with something like 99 or A8 he's not folding it, if he was semibluffing a draw i don't think he'll fold often either most likely you'll get 3bet or he'll call and check a blank turn to you. Most fish and average tags fall into that category imo.

      Hope it helps.
