      The flop is dry, I prefer a smaller bet, maybe half pot or less to help you induce calls from a wider range.

      When SB c/r this dry board, there is a decent chance he has something, possibly even a 2 given his 45vpip. If you did choose to continue with the hand, jamming the flop is your worst possible option - you basically cut out any possible bluff range he can have.

      It would be far better to flat flop and evaluate the situation on the turn. 3betting small would be superior to jamming also, but personally I would flat. You really want to keep his range as wide as possible in this WA/WB situation.

      w34z3l said all the main points already so I'll just elaborate a little. Firstly I'll probably not fold on this board. I just think that fishy players tend to try repping trips on low pairing boards all the time. And the truth is that they rarely have a 2 in their range. The most common 2X hand that people play is A2. Perhaps they might play K2s Q2s J2s sometimes? But that's about it.

      But he's VPIP 45 so def could have more 2X hands. I rather call and let him spazz out and call him down on all streets.
