      Dry board, I would slowplay too.
      Easy call, I guess opp had middle set?

      I'd raise almost anything I have there when villain mindonks 1/10th of a pot - charge him properly for his draws even though there aren't many ou there, so you don't have to make a big raise, as long as you make it (usually mindonks are seen as checks - so raise the regular amount that you usually cbet there as when he had checked to you). And you might say "well if I raise I fold out almost every hand" - well there's still not much merit in slowplaying since if he has total crap, you are very unlikely to get paid on later streets anyway?

      Obv all that depends on the villain type as well.

      I think you´re not really checking back that board, so I´d make my usual raise size to amount I´d c-bet which would be 1.8$. you build bigger pot and he may easily b/c with worse hands
      Getting all-in on the turn is fine
