      20/18/1.0k raise cb 30

      I thought there was bluff(two pair combo 56 only)

      And turn he did c/r although drawy board so I thought he had draw.

      or should I give up turn because turn card connected?

      Hey,

      What about 86s, 55, 66, possibly 79s as well since he calls 2.5bb raise in BB. He may or may not 3bet JJ too.. I'd say you can be fairly sure of folding one pair hands to turn check/raises unless you have extra info in single raised pots. This changes when you are shallower (3bet pots or less money to play for).

      LE: Also, if you can add stats on showdown and aggression it can help, along with any history of hands you have with him.

      Think a bit like this: How much value can I get if I bet? Like, what's he calling you with. I think betting the turn is better given positions as well. But obv you can think of alternatives.

      What I've experienced is people calling with hands like your opponent hand instead of raising them.. When you can but in just the backdoor flush in his range you can probably call QQ here, preferably without a heart to give him more flush combos.
