      I hate it when people min raise... is this pf-call okay? should bet the turn for free showdown and protection, or play for bluff-induce and pot-control?

      i called river because its a good bluff card for him and he bet really small.

      Hello,

      Preflop: Not really the best hand to continue playing. I would more often consider folding here.

      As played
      Flop: As you can see you can put yourself into horrible situations where you have such decisions. He seems to be very strong with his bet into multiway pot. But with my top pair I am likely Calling once and reevaluating turn.
      Turn: Fine to take pot control here.
      River: When he is betting out here, I am considering being being very often behind but with some reads on him that he might do that with worse I might Call but otherwise just give up my hand and stop getting myself into bigger bad play.

      Best regards,
      Rensu
