Villain is running at like 45/12/4 through <50 hands, and I've been relatively tag. He hasn't been really making any big bets, but one hand to note is when he flopped a set, c-bet really small, min3-bet a flop minraise, then bet two tiny amounts on the turn/riv.

I can honestly see a few crying calls coming up, but I tihnk I call here and check the turn, then evaluate the size of his bet.

If you think he'll follow the pattern i'm more willing to call a big bet, but like I said, a crying call is possible, since we're realistically only against AQ/77 (QQ if he's a nit)

Min raises without reads can mean a whole host of things with a loose villain such as this. However you have a tell from this villain, but is this an isolated tell? Have you seen him go to showdown with this betting pattern with anything less than a set, tpnk etc, does he bet fl drws? If not then it's a clear fold.

Now this is were it gets tricky if we continue playing this hand ,if you call and he bets turn we're probably behind, and if we 3 bet flop and he pushes then we are definately behind. For me it's a call as I don't see these villains ever folding and maybe we get to see a cheap SD if he shows weakness on turn. And yes I'm extremely weak playing AK, cue the push the flop brigade :D.

I dunno here, I think i like trying to get in here against a 45/12/4. His range contains lots of A-x hands/flush draws/the odd KQx hands.

In reality though, I call and re-evaluate the turn but attempting to get to showdown fairly light.
