      Pretty hard to optimize the play in that spot against an unknown. If you push too hard you might get him to fold a low boat at some point, if you let him lead the action you might not get enough value from lower boats. You can't discard the possibility that he's totally bluffing with big cards on the flop either.

      All-in-all in usually just call the turn to let him bluff/valuebet worse on the river since he has to act first. This also alleviates the leverage we have on him, since when we raise the turn he has to worry about us jamming the river, while if we wait until the river to raise he knows if he just calls the river raise it's the end he gets to see a showdown. We get a little less out of worse boats if he had no intention of folding them ever, but we get more value out of bluffs and worse boats if he's at all capable of folding them to a stronger line. Your call really.

      Hope it helps.
