      Nothing wrong with your line against an unknown, villain just had nothing and you have no reason to think he'll 2-barrel air on the turn, so if you just call it's hoping he improves sometimes with AQ/AK type hands, which in turn will lose you money against Jx if he happens to have that or QQ+ if the type is ugly for him. Calling becomes better if he's folding stuff like AJ from UTG, which is possible since it's full ring.

      Point is, until you know better about villain's range for opening there, his barreling tendencies and his skill at valuebetting, you can't truly evaluate the potential of a line that starts with calling the flop. So at microstakes fr where regs usually don't bluff much and suck at valuebetting, you're better off forcing the action on them on average.

      Hope it helps.
