Hi Nocco,

Yes I think our hand is strong enough to proceed exactly as you did. The min-check-raise is concerning, sometimes this is a very big hand, but the guy is also sitting without a full stack so maybe he thinks KJ is the nuts on this board too, or a draw is not out of the question. Readless I think this is fine to simply call him down. And get reads, so next time we know what he does this with and can make a better decision (like get it all in with him if he takes this line now and shows us QJ or 88 or something, continue flatting and calling down if he shows us a total bluff, etc.)
