      If you were going to cbet on the flop, you should have pushed all in. 2/3 of $1.40 is slightly greater than half of your remaining stack. The low bet put you in an awkward position when the opponent re-raised.

      As for weather you should have folded. . Without stats I'd probably assume the opponent has a stronger hand at this point. So you only have 2 outs, giving you 11:1 odds of improving your hand on the turn or river. Pot odds are around 4:1 i think, so it should be an easy fold.
