      I'd make it bigger on the flop for value, either he has a random pocket pair and he's folding anyway, or he has some broadway cards that hit this board somehow (a pair, a flushdraw, a straight draw, a combo of those) and we want maximum value from those hands. $0.7, at least, looks better.

      On the turn some hands improved to mostly two pairs/pair + gutshot type of hands, sometimes even a straight, but there are still of lot of these hands you beat and most importantly, the hands you beat will not bet when checked to, they'll check behind with their flushdraw or weak pair + gutshot and take a free shot at outdrawing you. However they'll very often call a bet from you, this guy seems very cally. I think bet/folding to $1.4 is better there barring a read that he will spazz raise worse hands, and i don't think he's the type to do that.

      Hope it helps.
