      By betting 0.60 I get pot odds 1.6 - 1 to win 1.6 pot so I need fold equity less than 40%. By check raising: first I can't be sure that he cbet so I give him free card and he can easily outdraw me, second I get pot odds 0.9 - 1 to win ~3.3 pot so I need to be more than 50% sure that he folds unless I want to play big pot with marginal hand with no draw.

      correct move imo... slowplaying 2nd-pair when it's so low is just plain bad. Unless of course you have a totally accurate read on him...

      This is a cash game man. 100BB. So I play big pots with big hands small pots with small hands. U dont have to be willing to die for every pot.

      Exactly. If you don't hit your set: simply check/fold. That's the best way you can play small pocket pairs if you just called preflop and are out of position.

      Good luck at the tables!
