      Just give up on that flop, a 12/11 there has a boat way too often and he's not folding it to only a few barrels, he might not even fold AQ-high.

      If you start firing you should go all the way to have a chance to get him to fold something. So try going for something like $2.2 on the turn so that he calls you lighter, that leaves you with a decent 2/3 pot size bet to shove on the river, which represents your best shot at ever getting him to fold a boat.

      As played on the river you have no fold equity with $4.8 left into a $10.45 pot, giving up is fine.

      Hope it helps.
