      should i have just called his re-raise? i figured he could be going for many draws there. i thought that a re-raise would push him off a draw.

      Hi,


      You can't push guys that minraise with draws off of them, don't think like that :p If you 3-bet against draws it's with the hope that they will call just to miss most turns, so you get value.

      Hard to say anything about that particular spot without reads on the guy. An aggro player minraising might just have a monster anyway tho he often will have air too, a passive guy usually have your T8 beat already. Considering he raised in a 4-way pot I'd say without reads you should probably just dump it out of position, it's not worth guessing your way to showdown out of position with TPNK. If he's overall spastic and that minraise seems like something he does often, I don't mind calling but as usual, how many bets are we calling blindly from there on?


      Hope it helps.
