      I checked because I don't want to do conti bets into boards which have opponents range. On the second occasion maybe I should have but am not sure.

      I think you can cbet both and let go if you meet resistance.

      I think judge recommends calling at least once here to see if he really has it. If he only bets the goods then its an easy fold.

      1) Make it larger raise pf. you don´t want that A6 would call and then hit his A. I would make it 1$.
      On that board I would b/f flop. You still might have the best hand and often enough you take pot down.
      2) I would c-bet 0,8$, since you probably have the best hand.
      3) Fold here is fine. You can also call flop and fold to turn bet.
