      Either raise Flop or Raise turn. I think your line is certainly fine. Turn brings so many draws and while he may/may not have them, I think we want to start thinking of how to put all the money in.

      Given that he potted, I don't think there's too much room for raising smaller (raising to 6 is as good as raising to 12 IMO) so I guess you can just jam here. Then again this guy seems fishy and maybe a smaller raise just looks weaker in his simple-minded brain. So I may not necessarily rule out raising smaller to like 8 (which is as good as shove) just to look slightly weaker, but it's around the same IMO.
