      Raise 3x pre - 0.12$.

      I would cbet more and call his raise, because flop is rather dry and most players are not going to raise with draws too often, so idea of betting bigger is you charge draws more and I think calling his raise is fine as you can use your position on turn and board is not that draw heavy and as I said - most players are not willing to raise their draws (unless you have reads he is doing that), so he either has air you want to get additional bet out of or he has a hand he's not going to fold on later streets anyway.
      I would definitely raise turn, because he got some additional outs for his drawing hands and he can't let him draw cheaply.

      Good luck!
