Just call the minraise and see what hits
I always try and convert my hand. most of the forummers love the default HHF though. lol.
I guess I messed up a little on this hand, I'm still not good at playing deep stack. I guess if we're on 100bbs, this would be a better move. Still, let me defend my play guys.
The reasons why I made this move.
1. He's a aggressive donk who folds if you push back.
2. He'll almost call and raise on later expensive street with a monster, so, he can't be on 99, TT, JJ or KQ. His min-raise looks more like a question: "Do you have a monster?"
3. It's a coordinated board, shoving looks more like AA, KK, protecting against a draw.
That was how I looked at it. Maybe I made a bad play while playing this deep.

Regardless of what happened (he folded or he called and you completed your draw) I don't like it.
True, we're behind, but we do have more than 8 outs. 3 aces, 4 kings, 4 eights. I discounted the queens, bacause if he's on KJ, a Q is not gonna help us. that gives us about 38% chance to win by the river?
By reraising all-in, we can fold out hands like AJ, KJ, QJ... It made sense at the time I was on the hand.
I guess it's a -EV play. Ahh well... I'll do better next time.

As a TAG player your range of starting hands will rarely hit this type of flop.
You have to ask yourself, If you were villian, with relation to the size of your bet, what would you put yourself on?
The push was a wrong move IMO.
I was trying to rep AA, KK protecting against a draw. I felt I had a strong read on him, there's no way he can call a 200bb shove with TPGK, even if he knows I'm on a bluff. That's how I felt at that time.
