      Good fold. I don't think micro stakes players raise the Turn with draws and with one pair hands. >80% of the time, you will see 2 pairs. Of course it could differ from player to player, but if u are readless in this spot, you should assume that they don't bluff the turn and they don't raise it for thin value with weak top pairs.

      Typically low limit players are imbalanced in this spot. If they have top pair and want to raise for thin value, they almost always do it on the flop. they tend to play more passively with draws (or if they are aggro, they probably raise flop right away instead of call flop raise turn). And they also like to trap with the nuts so they call flop and allow u to put in a second bet before raising.

      Have you heard of Baluga Theorem? It states that you should strongly reconsider the strength of your one pair hand when faced with a turn raise. I think that is really applicable in this spot here.
