      Was i alright to min-raise the river here?
      I thought he woulda been raising harder with an ace, so i figured i'd be getting value from most pocket pairs here mainly

      Too thin without reads in my opinion. It's possible he's playing some weaker trips like that to get you to call down with 8x/99-JJ since it doesn't look like you have much, and even if you're ahead it's incredibly hard for him to put you on anything except trips/boats in that spot, so he might not even call the minraise.

      Hope it helps.
