      What i should do on turn? x/f(so weak); push(filter the hands stonger than mine); so i bet a small size to get the middle pair value, or induce bluff. In addition, if i want to induce bluff, i can't fold to his raise. How about my call his raise on turn?

      Interesting spot.

      Preflop, you can go for a slightly bigger raise considering the amount of dead money in the pot, already.

      On this flop I'd bet slightly bigger here in order to prepare a turn shove.

      Turn really sucks here and to be honest I really think that check/folding is the best option here.
      I doubt he limp/calls with a hand like KT and I can hardly imagine a worse hand continuing here. Probably, when playing I would bet as well, since it's hard to figure out this on the move, but if we think about it it is really one of those spots where TPTK isn't good enough.
      When he shoves I doubt we can call here profitably unless we think he turn some made hand into a bluff which is highly unusual for this type of player.
