      Either re-raise preflop to 3 x his bet or fold. IMO.

      Hi,


      I'm fine calling a minraise preflop with 97o in general, tho I think LonePiranha suggestion might be better since it's rush poker and you most likely have no idea how that guy is playing at all postflop.

      As played on the flop betting is fine, I'd probably fold to the flop minraise, the truth is if we're ahead it's not by much because he probably has a big diamond possibly with another overcard and we can't stand the heat on the turn. Our outs are at best tainted, at worse poisoned, it's just not a spot we should start guessing for big money without any reads.

      Calling the turn is fine, and we're flipping a coin on the river since we have no idea about his bluffing frequencies. I'd end up folding as well but you see how the hand developed even tho we hit one of the best cards for our hand, so I still think we're better off just giving it to him on the flop.


      Hope it helps.
