      Sorry buts thats really hard to read, but I think I figured it out :P

      Good raise preflop.
      At the flop the pot should have been 0.85.
      I would make a continuation bet of about 0.5. If he raises I'd either push or fold, depending on the player. Most times I'd push since he would be holding Ax. Rarely would he have made trips on the flop.

      Since you were the preflop aggressor you want to show power on the flop. That is when the opponent is most likely to fold (since his hand can't really get much better).
      If you haven't already, read the Fixed Limit strategy article on Continuation bets. The same strategy loosely applies to NL

      exactly, this is why it would be better to make a small cbet on the flop to try and scare him away before he improved his hand

      raise to .5$ preflop and shove the flop
