      So he has a 50% steal range

      I got a gutshot

      I think i might turn this into bluff

      When he calls though he probably has A, so i just give up turn right?

      Hmm interesting after going through equilab if i consider he folds weak A on turn and all but Ax on river and full houses, then triple barrel wuda been slightly +ev

      But i dont have a range calculator on the tables xD

      Well i think if you fold flop you cannot do a mistake here.

      I dont know if there is need of bluffing on our micro limits plus we don't know if we did correctly or not.

      So for me i fold flop and it is end of storry

      Preflop calling is fine.

      Check/raising the flop is questionable and have to look how much he fold if his cbet gets raised.
      Overall if we do want to raise we have to make it bigger - $1.6-$1.7.

      The turn isn't good for us so I'd just give up here.

      On the river checking is fine.
