      I think this is about the maximum you can get. You could call the turn and check it back to him on the river and hope for him to barrel again but if he has any showdown value he'll just check behind.

      It's very hard for him to have anything there given his limp, best you can hope for is probably something like a stubborn 77. If you get a lot of action on such a dry board you'd have to be worried of a higher 5x unless your opponent is bad enough to felt any overpair or 6x in that spot. 2 bets is probably as much as you're gonna get from worse hands no matter what you do.

      You can try something funky like call turn donk river, because that will allow him to get to showdown for one more bet, it's a deleveraging play: instead of worrying on the turn about possible river bets, your opponent knows he can just call that one river bet and see a showdown.

      Hope it helps.
