      Why build the pot against a calling station, his VPIP is 81.
      Villain is calling almost anything.
      Flop bet 2/3pot and if villain doesnt fold, give up.
      check/fold

      If you just want him to fold you can play this with any 2 cards, since you have good hand and solid flop you should try to extract money out of him, not to chase him away... just my opinion...

      i would bet 0.55 on the flop, i dont want him to fold... i have outs..., same on the turn, arround 60% of the pot...

      sometimes small bets looks more scary... and you risk less...

      Hi,
      I agree with guys.Only 57 hands but looks like opp calling too much with trash.
      I`d cbet less on flop,between 1/2-2/3 pot size.On turn bet is not mistake I think,but on paired board I prefer to check for pot control especially against such opp(I don't think he would bet often).If you still decided to bet on turn,make it 1/2 pot.River c/f.
      Nice hand except bet sizing.
      Good luck :)

      co seems to be calling station, but betting turn is fine, in cases if you shoudl hit your 15 outs.
