      I'd bet bigger on the flop and just call the turn.. i think that you should have seen the showdown as cheaply as possible.

      Howdy,

      Board is dry enough for us not to be worried about draws so I think we can check back flop. Of course we can cbet if we know he's going to call with worse pp and he's not going to bet out himself on later streets (that means - if he's calling station), so some stats helps here.
      I wouldn't raise turn just because he just can't call with worse. You'll see 66/22/Ax almost always if he shoves. Calling is more reasonable as he may be block betting with small pairs etc.

      Good luck!
