      Well turned 66 into a bluff really. Your flop raise is an information raise (bad): very rarely will you be ahead when you get called, which means on the turn you're beat most of the time and you have to decide between betting as a bluff or giving up. It's a crappy situation to put yourself into, especially when you're not yet well versed in poker theory and playing against opponents who often don't know what they're doing, and so are hard to read. As played just check/fold the turn.

      My standard there is to just check/call the flop and expect most players to stop bluffing on the turn at nl5, so i'd just check/fold most turns.

      Hope it helps.
