      I don't get understand why you bet turn? What will he fold? A high maybe, but at least not a flushdraw against such a weak bet..

      I call river and make a note if he playes flushdraw or any other strong hand this way..

      I hate minibetting...I used to call every time but better is to fold or this case fold.

      Turn bet was probably meant for busted flush draw but weak players are going to call you anyway. And not only that you're making a bigger pot and since he raised you on the flop, he's not going to fold easily the turn.

      The catch is that you know that he's a weak player and so you'll be thinking of calling the river if card like 7 comes on the river. Wait for better positions.
