      Bet once and give up should be OK here but given your equity you can also consider barreling. You have to weigh how likely he is to think: Turn is a bad bluff card so now him betting is less likely to be a bluff. That's very hard to tell but it's what you need to consider if you are going to bluff the turn. This also extends to the river. I personally cbet once and give up on that specific turn since it improves his Tx and Kx is never folding, possibly not JJ, 99 either. I would however bet low blank cards as a bluff.
