      I think you should raise Flop to protect hand because many cards on Turn killing your action. I know it's good to let him bluffing you coz his 80% cb but I rather protect my hand and charge him for any OESD + FD than lettin him see turn cheaply.

      I think b/f that spot is fine. Only hand that you´re ahead of is likely AxKs that doesn´t know what else to do, but more likely he has there flush or maybe KJ.
      Pot isn´t that big that you should call there overbet shove.

      I think we don´t want to play that spot for stacks, so if we raise then we have to raise/fold. So I don´t mind just calling to keep pot small and then let him barrel basically on any turn card, where I´m happy to call again.
      If he checks then we can go 3 streets for value on blank turn and river cards.
