      I would bet half pot size bet on flop(0.5),if bluff do not work then check/fold.
      If I know from my experience ( or stats),that my opp is calling station postflop, then I will check/fold.No need to waste money on bluffs with only overcards.You can`t compete with big stack when you don`t know you are ahead or behind, because your stack is too small.With two oc you have more than 50%equity against random cards, against semi-loose calling range is coin flip.
      Good luck :)
