But what does the minbet flop / pot turn mean when a brick comes? No draw or anything. Quite often I think villain thinks we have a weak hand, because we would have otherwise raised. So he thinks we have a weak hand and is trying to take it away from us on the turn. First one is kinda like a tester bet, "to see where they're at", and then, when we show no resistance, they show aggression. Usually this line is taken by a maniacal fish, since only a fish can mindonk the flop, and only a maniac would try and be overly aggressive on the turn.
Depends whether you we raised the flop min-donk, and we should have. If he donk/calls the flop then pots the turn I probs shut down without a hand, we should pretty much always raise a min-donkbet on the flop, i'm at work, but a good way to see what a min-donk means would be to run a filter for facing donkbet on the flop AND raised flop or something, filter out all the big PP's and see how we're doing, I would say that if your raising donkbets a lot, with any of your opening range, then your in profit wether or not the flops hit us.
imo any line re: the micros that starts, "villain thinks......" is us levelling ourselves and over thinking something, i think 10nl and under you can confidently raise any min-donk with any cards and show a profit. Obv sometimes better players than myself would be able to pick better lines based on judgment of ranges/reads etc but fish's ranges are often a bitch to read and act on so i personally, for now, dont mind that i'll just raise any min-donk, same as i'd be raising from the BB vs any SB completing
