      i would continue to bet on the turn (half the pot to 2/3 of the pot), as there are flush draws in his range and you could get a free show down if he checks to you on the river...

      a jack is unlikely if he is a good player as he gives away free cards by not raising and if he has a 6 as well he has at least a bigger problem to call on the turn

      Good card to 2nd barrel on turn, we are very often getting a free showdown after we barrel the turn also otherwise we have an easy fold for further actions. Also sometimes I would mix up my game and raise it preflop if you are having players behind you who are folding very often vs CBet. But also sometimes it's fine not to barrel the turn if you are against some kind of loose player because it's a freeplay and you haven't invested that much into the pot and you don't want to build up the pot with your weak hand.

      Best regards,
