      Hello, i think you should raise a little more on the flop, maybe 0.40, and after his raise play for stacks. In his range has many combinations with straight and flush draws, and only a few with 2 pairs and sets, so stack off is good on NL2 ;) Good luck!

      Hello fractalsonfire,

      Most likely raise it bigger on the flop vs such a player and get it in. He may easily even have worse Ax hands there. ~$0,50 would be my raise then we could easily ship the turn if he even Calls.

      With more reads at some point we might even consider taking pot control line if we continue having the guy winning most of the showdowns.

      Best Regards.
