      Hello Wacko118,

      What I don't like in this spot is that your bet on turn just smells for a weakness. I'd really be rather inclined to bet it a bit bigger on turn ~$1,40+ and then reevaluate further actions. You might just induce him to bluff and therefore I'd even Call and reevaluate it on river.

      Best regards.
