      Did I get maximum value from this hand?, stats on the opponent were 17/0/0/0 with 0.0 aggression over 33 hands.
      If he'd raised over me I'd of felt pretty sure I was beat on the flop, however as he flat called me on the flop, was my turn bet too high or do you think he would of folded to anything here?

      he can still c/c your turn bet with 33/55/77, 4x or maybe smt like A5 so betting turn again for value and protection is fine. You can make it 0.4$, although I think 0.5$ is a little better and then taking your free showdown. Players tend to call very often nl 2 with anything and since you´re most of the times ahead, then best trying to get maximum value from worse hands

      He's calling any c-bet on this kind of board. Your turn bet is a must because you have to protect your hand since river will probably be overcard to your pair so you will have to just check it or fold it if you see he's betting only with hands. There are no draws on the board (for his tight range) so your bet is ok.

      Good hand and nice pot. Don't worry and go on. :)
