      Turn bet is very small. I might still call.

      River is a definite fold.

      hmm river getting those odds ... a call is too tempting

      ok , first buyin full

      Postflop is getting so ugly, you are OOP so can't control the size of the pot. Is probably too nitty to flop fold to that small raise, my guess is call flop check-fold turn since if he bets turn he defenitly has you beat.

      I think with your stack size (80bb) and board texture you should rather 3-bet flop and get it all-in there
      He would sometimes play his draws that way and you should be ahead of his range
      With safe turn card I think better is c/rai than c/c turn and then you get too good odds to fold river, so you have to c/c river
