      Hey Bubalus,

      you can only resteal when opponent is openraising in late position which is not the case in this hand.

      You can treat minraiser as 2 limpers as many players do and play the way you played the hand, but I personally prefer to give UTG raise(even if it's a minraise) respect without any stats or reads and stick to standard raising range JJ+/AK here, because raising might result in higher variance since you cannot really tell where you stand against your opponent.

      As played, there's no other way but to fold this flop. Nice hand.
