      The villain is unknown. The question is - was I too aggressive on the turn? I just thought his minbets were a sign he doesn't have anything too strong.

      Let me ask you this: if his minbet means he doesn't have anything strong, why do you think he'd minbet/call your raises twice even on that ugly turn card?

      I tend to put unknowns mostly on draws with a few made hands mixed in when they minbet/call and since the only draw got there on the turn I'll usually flat the minbet in position and see what he does on the river. If he like pots the river into me I'm turbo-snap-folding, if he checks I'll usually go ahead and try to valuebet worse Kx hands except on diamond rivers on which he could be checking a flush again.

      Hope it helps.
