      Hey Pokerferrer,

      Villain has a reasonably tight cold-calling range. Mainly pairs and good aces I would presume.

      Cbetting flop for protection/value is fine. Villains Ftcbet is low so far, I wouldn't be suprised if he can float with Ax etc, plus he's calling with most PP's.

      Turning hand into a bluff on turn is fine. I think you should expect the average regular at these stakes to ditch PP's on the turn, so there is no need to fire 2 to get him off a hand like 99. When he calls he probably has an Ax, and he's probably not folding it on the river when he is closing the action even though the flush gets there.
