      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      CO (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K, K.
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, BU calls $0.30, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.75) 7, T, 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.51, BU raises to $1.02, Hero calls $0.51.

      Turn: ($2.79) 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $1.00, Hero calls $1.00.

      River: ($4.79) 4 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $2.00, Hero calls $2.00.

      Final Pot: $8.79.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, kings and sevens(Kd Ks).
      BU shows two pairs, queens and sevens(Qd Qs).

      Hero wins with two pairs, kings and sevens(Kd Ks).

      If he would've 3bet me OTB, I would've played for stacks on this flop, but should I do the same vs a preflop flat/flop minraise there? (assuming we don't have stats/any knowledge of his ranges).

      Vs unknown is it fine to assume way ahead/way behind there?
      Or should I raise the turn for value/protection? The minraise flop and only 1/3 pot on T is either the nuts milking me or a draw imo - so I couldn't decide whether I should protect/get it all in vs that or ... r/f would be ugliest thing ever

      Deep I would likely played the same way
      min-raise is often top pair hand, but he can also play that way 7x and until you´re not sure that he is playing that way every time Tx better just c/c down his half potsize bets.
      You´re ahead enough times, but imo not that much to raise turn/river for value
