      What should you do with these small bets from the opponent? I figured he was on the flush draw ( which he was, that's why I included the results). When the K came on the turn I decided to just call it. Can you raise there as well? I was going for pot control.

      If you're that sure he has a FD you should raise the flop for value.

      However, in general I also like to only call the flop for potcontrol.
      My plan is to raise most turns vs another small bet to get small PPs to fold and perhaps some FDs to call.
      I doubt he has a T too often as most players would not lead out once they flop trips on a board like this.

      As played I think we can call the turn to potcontrol and induce bluffs.
      I thought about raising, but it's probably a bit too thin since he folds PPs almost always and even with FDs he could realize he's dead vs full houses.
