I would fold here as i would put him on a 6 and i dont really pay attention to pot odds unless im on a draw because the pot odds to call are good but if ur up against a 6 then ur 10% to win the hand and u aint getting odds that good to call.
Thinking about villain's range to make that minraise is more important than thinking about pot odds. As WV said, villain knows that flop is unlikely to have helped hero, so that minraise can be based on lots of hands that don't have a 6 - not only could this be a monster draw as begley pointed out, it could be any fd, overcards, pairs, and all kinds of junk. And, yes, it could be a higher pair, a 6, or 33.
That's why belgo was asking whether villain is passive or aggressive - the more passive he is, the more likely we're beat, the more aggressive he is, the more likely he's trying to make a move on the pot thinking that the flop didn't help us.
I'm also stacking here.
