It is $11 Super Stack tournament on FTP with 12min slow blind level and 5000 starting stack.

Should I have 3-bet on the flop to his min-raise?

What to do on the turn now, since he bet pot?

Hi adikumar2010!

You didn't provide any read info for this opp on the flop or turn.. it's crucial to determining their range. Are they passive or aggressive? What % do they call? What % do they raise? What % do they bet? What hands have they gone to showdown with?

If this play is standard for them, I'm going to call and see the turn.
On the turn, I'm most likely going to check to them and my play will need to be based on 2 things... how does the opp normally play turns? Are they betting them? Are they raising them? I also may lead again on the turn if the opp is not raising them frequently. I also could check/fold.. it depends on the read information that is not provided.

Are they a maniac that's going to showdown with junk? If they're a maniac that has showed down total garbage, I'm 3-bet shoving the flop and taking my chances.

If the opp is not used to raising flops... then I'm folding to the flop raise, as they most likely have 7x.

The keys to this hand are flop and turn reads that were not provided.
