      I don't see value in raising except from flush draws / PPs (which would probably fold).

      His bet sizing increased, the board got more connected and I don't beat any of his value range.
      I have little equity to improve and high reversed implied odds - easy fold.

      Preflop: I think you should raise 2.5-3bb at lower limits. People just don't 3bet enough. It's fine if the pot is larger on the Flop if you think you are the better player and will win the pot more often than your opponent.

      Flop: I'll treat that as a check and raise it up to 15 cents

      Turn: As played folding here is too weak. He could have many flush draws still and I don't necessarily think you are against a straight/2 pairs all the time.

      It's true that you can rarely improve vs his strong made hands but he should have a decent amount of draws.
