      I'm reading up on Turn play right now. In this situation, am I narrowing his range too much?
      I think it may not be such a wet board to worry about giving a free turn card and hoping to induce a bluff?
      By betting the turn we are keeping protection, even from hands like AJ and so on. Am I missing value by betting the turn (or betting too much)?

      Preflop your raise is good.

      I'd bet around $0.7-$0.8 on the flop.

      I don't like the idea of checking the turn. We are missing value playing this way and I would play bet/bet/bet in this particular situation against this opponent.
      Your bet sizing on the turn looks fine.
