      turn check-raise in this limit usually means very steong hand.
      But ok i dont know much about stats (i play in cake, we cand use them), but these villain stats seems pretty fishi/loose to me? Then maybe its ok to call here whit these stats, i dont know. But if you want for sure play this hand and after turn raise for villain, for sure you must push him to allin to put him last 1.77 in. Because maybe he was in some draw or just bluffing hopeing that you fold and dont get in river what he want he can just check fold, when he dont have absolute nothing. Its my oppionion.

      He could have some AJ, he missed the flop so checked but called his two overcards (or flush draw) hoping they will hit on some later streets.
      Flop maybe paired him, so he went for it all, because turn card doesn't complete nor flush, nor straight, but he could think that his top pair is good enough. Ofc if you decided to call turn, just shove it, don't leave it till river.
      If he had JJ, I believe he would do cbet or re-raise you on flop aswell as if he already had a set, but I could be wrong - because he seems passive overall, but it could be false because of small amount of hands.

      I'm just shoving over his turn bet. I'm not happy about it because let's face it, usually 32/5/1.6 players aren't value-raising worse made hands there, but there is already a ton of money in the pot and it's always possible we have some counterfeit outs against TJ or we're ahead of some common spazz with stuff like KsQs/JsXs when they pick up a turned redraw.

      Hope it helps.
