      both players are quite fishy.
      BB probably shouldnt have called a raise with only OESD.
      CO shouldnt have raised with... well... absolutely nothing. not even a draw(unless you count runner runner straight)

      also, minraising someone always gives them odds to call.
      you raised 2.4 into a 2.4 pot(making it a 4.8 pot) giving him 1/4 odds(+ implied odds) to call.

      turn bet was ridiculously small. $4-4.5 may have put him off the draw, $2.2 is giving him decent odds(1/4 + implied odds)

      him calling a pre-flop raise, and then betting the flop makes me think a high king, so unless you have a really good read on him(which it seemed you did) you probably should have check/folded the turn.

      basically, if you want to push people off draws, raise at least 3x theirs or you are giving them odds to call.

      and its probably not a good idea to raise with nothing.

      just fold on the flop . dont start doing moves against people at nl 10 because usualy dont fold .

      if you decide to raise make it more(around 3.7$) because you want fold equity .

      after he calls you on the flop check behind on the turn with your queen and hope to showdown the hand .

      btw if you know a player is drawing bet more and charge him more for his draw , dont give him good odds to call
