      Do you think I should bet/fold the turn?

      Against an unknown I think his raise is usually 2p+ and less often AT AJ so against the small raise on the flop I could find a call but when he bets again on the turn I think it's a check fold. We shouldn't be betting on the turn unless we believe he's raising weaker hands, in which case we should raise and get value on the flop.
