      At the moment i figured folding was better, but i have no idea what his minraise here means. Do i give up here to early? I figured if i called here, i would have no idea what i will be doing on the river whatever comes there basically so i folded to a minraise, so is this a fold/shove situation or a fold situation, and why!

      Can't really think of a reason to shove there really, double paired boards usually aren't spots where you'll get semibluff-raised by flushdraws on the turn. You can't protect against anything.

      I could see us making the call with a read that BB can make some pretty spazzy attempt to represent stuff that hit on the turn planning on bluff-catching on most rivers, but really i don't think it's worth the trouble most of the time, he likely just has a boat already.

      Hope it helps.
