      I think turn bet is a bit small.. If you are ready to calldown the river, i think you should bet a bit more like 28-32cents, that will induce oponents shove.

      On the other hand, that 19 VPIP limp, meens he has pocket (22-77) or KQs, KQo, Kjs, KTs and we are behind alot of the time.. In the long term i think it's -EV spot.. i think you should give up on turn (ch/f)

      betting turn to then take your free showdown seems fine. I would also prefer betting turn to then check back river. I also like your bet size- that dry board you don´t have to bet more to protect your hand and get value from worse. I would also fold to his river shove, since it does not make any sense him to shove there worse hands

      best regards,
