      Pre: Not much respect to this minraise, was thinking of 3betting, but as he would call it anyway, decided to call.

      Flop: Definitely trying to get it in with FD+gutshot.

      Turn: MINRAISE WAS MISCLICK! Sorry for bold, but just please no comments "you should make it bigger on turn". So, anyways, somehow I didn't even really care about that 6 coming as I didn't think much about his range, but it seems I should have done that... If I would bet normally, I would make it ~3$ and then after his raise it's no doubt call.

      But, now, when looking back, I'm thinking that I could check it back on turn as there are not much hands he could call 3bet flop and continue action on turn. I think he would 4bet me with 99/TT/77 sets or completed straight on flop, but can't really predict such a player.

      So what's the best play there? I think there's not much doubt about flop, right? But should I check back turn, as my equity falls down a lot and there's no way he could fold AA/QQ/TT/JJ, sets, 8x hands or any other stuff I'm behind.

      I like the way you played it (not counting the misclick ofc :D )

      On the turn, checking back sounds good to me. I don't think we have much fe and we ovciously don't want to get it in here, becasue our equity isn't that great from T to R. Since I won't give him credit for folding any 2P+, just check back and hope to spike your straight or flush, in which case you just shove no matter what his action is.
