      I would decide on flop what to do - shove or fold, because he has ~1/2 pot bet left on turn, so most likely he will shove anyway and you doesn't have much equity if you are behind anyway.
      It often seems like easy decision for me - he's not full stacked, so he's probably bad, he minraises and doesn't leave impression of logical guy. So shoving should be fine as he still may show up 7x/88/99/FD, but you are almost without outs against Jx/44/77/QQ+. Hard to say bout his range, but sticked approximately how I looks for me:
      equity win tie pots won pots tied
      Hand 0: 42.315% 42.20% 00.12% 23394 65.50 { TdTh }
      Hand 1: 57.685% 57.57% 00.12% 31915 65.50 { JJ, 99, 77, 44, AJs, AcTc, Ac9c, Ac8c, Ac7c, Ac6c, Ac5c, Ac4c, KJs, KcTc, Kc9c, QJs, QcTc, Qc9c, JTs, T9s, 98s, 87s, 76s, 65s, JTo }

      The more suited connectors he plays the better and I took out AA/KK/QQ as I believe he would 3bet it pre.
      Overall shove should be fine, but correct me if I'm wrong as it's just my humble opinion.

      No i wouldnt say ur wrong id say uv hit the nail on the head tbh min raise does seem a little like a draw from this type of player

      i didnt like making the flop call as i knew i would be c/folding to any more overcards on the turn, although i would have called if the turn was a blank would this be correct?

      I do seem to suffer in these spots because i have a hard time deciding on what the best line is which probebly leads to a bad call

      its a marginal situation , i think too he is bad proabably.
      minraisng on flop doesnt mean a very strong hand, i guess i'd call the turn or shove the flop. Such players have not only legitimate hands in their range but also very crapy hands with no equity at all.

      Sounds fine. If you've seen him do weird stuff before already just jam, otherwise folding isn't bad either. Calling is the worst option unless you think he's totally full of crap and you want him to keep bluffing, meaning you have to call that turn jam getting 3:1.

      Hope it helps.
