      Not really happy about my turn bet here. I guess i just bet in hopes of free river. Dont see him having a strong made hand on the flop considering he just called my raise. Is this a mandatory check behind on the turn hoping to get to cheap showdown?

      Flop you isolate yourself with your raise, just call his bet flop.

      likely I would also just call flop, since he bet close to pot, so very likely he is going to b/c there (often with better hands)
      Not really sure if you can bet turn for value, but since it is also good bluff card I don´t mind your c-bet- you get sometimes better hands to fold+ protect against flushdraws

      best regards,
