Betting the flop acomplishes nothing imo.
The hands that call/jam have us beat or if he has something like Ad2x has 42% equity and if he has stuff like AdJx/Kx/Tx where behind/fliping.
And the hands that we beat fold(u honestly expect any one to call a flop bet with a 8high flusdraw or second pair on a board like this?).

Basicly there are no turn cards that where gonna absolutly hate since even ace or king will spike our equity so just check and play a turn.
Where gonna induce bluffs and some light "value" bets from Tx and if a brick hits his Adx and Kdx are gonna lose a tone of equity.
Why are u halfstacking?
Im yet to see any one halfstack effectivly.
Just buy in full or if you feel like hating your self be shortstacker...
