      Hi,

      I would prefer betting 2$ on the flop to get more value out of Ax, Kx and draws. Betting turn half bet is fine to either prepare river shove for value or c/c to let him bet himself with worse hands. I would not fold my hand against 53 vpip player- he has there enough worse hands and you should be ahead quite often.

      best regards,
