      Bet bigger on the flop. Fold to raise on turn because what hands does he raise with that you beat? - maybe QAc/Kc but that card has also completed a lot of the draws he might have floated with. And if you call he is probably shoving the river so you have to be prepared to call it all off.

      As amplifyd said, a bigger bet would help you. On that limit they will call you anyway, but in the long term they won't be hitting, so you will get more $, plus the fact that on the higher limits you'll need to keep in mind what implied odds are you giving the other guy, so you will already be there with the mentality that you need better protection on might-become-scary board.

      .40 or .45 get would be better.

      Besides that fact, you should notice how players usually play their hands. In my site (cake) all minraises and all minbets are the nuts, while overbets and allins are always bluffs. You should try to find info if not about the particular villain then at least for his player type.

      I agree with previous posters. Bet bigger on the flop and likely fold to the turn raise on that ugly card.

      You make money two different ways in poker: by getting value out of your good hands while getting away cheap when you're likely beat. The fishiest the players, the more transparent they play. When he minraises that turn until proven otherwise you should just assume he has you crushed, it's not worth going broke while drawing dead.

      Hope it helps.
