      You need to bet that flop, 25-30 cents is a good amount. I would bet the turn again for value. If I got re-raised on the turn after betting the flop it would be a tough choice either way, I think it would depend on who I was playing.

      I think flop c/r is fine if poney19 usually doesn't min3bet, he likely has stuff like QQ+/AK that he'll usually bet and call a raise with, so it's the fastest way to get the stacks in. Turn is ugly because it should scare QQ-KK, AA beats you and AK hands don't always c-bet/call the flop raise. Still, AA is rare and if you think he can show up with AK there going broke is fine, otherwise it's a fold.

      If poney19 is min3betting a whole bunch of crap then you should just go broke without overthinking it, either by leading or by check/raising.

      Hope it helps.
