      i thought that the min raise gave me really good odds so i called. flop gave me a OESD. but he bet so small. i thought that a raise was good to push him off the hand, yet he was very likely to hit the A. pushing all in on the flop i think was an overplay on my part. should i have called the small bet instead, or raised and called the re-raise for the OESD?

      raise seems fine idea, but I think 0.8$ is also fine amount
      You can also call, since if you get 3-bet you likely still have to go with your hand although then you´re at quite bad shape
      Generally I don´t expect to get 3-bet when player bets that small, so likely he has there AA very often, so maybe better is call his small 3-bet on the flop and fold to turn shove if you don´t improve
