      You could bet/fold the turn to make draws and weaker pairs pay and to get a free showdown in position in case a scary card hits.

      Either way, it's likely you will only get one more street of value; it's better if you can control the size and make it bigger on the turn than if the fish either bets smaller like he did now - or suddenly fires pot-size, at which point it would turn into a tough call.

      not going to b/f turn against 60/15. If you want to go on pot control it is fine, although I´d likely would play there for stacks. Put if you have no reads what hand he is c/r flop and checking turn you can always check back to get some information
