looks like A7 or 56 so im atleast calling this. maybe even reraise and if he comes back over the top again fold cause i highly doubt he would reraise again here with A7 or worse.

i plan on at least calling. i think his range includes a lot that we are ahead of. tons of other aces & weaker 2p's. but sets/straight worry me into maybe not raising.

Fact that he's in the small blind means he could have lots of different 2 pairs. I think a value-raise to $12+ is probably in order

ya and i also think its is very unlikely he is going to bet out 1$ on flop and 1$ on turn with a set. and if he did why wouldnt he reraise your turn bet.

You are big stack. Have you done any bullying since villain has been at the table?

If you have, then try to disguise this bet as a bullying maneuver. If not, bet out 1/2 to 3/4 pot. Since you are big stack you can use this as a chance to make it look like a steal. If he folds and you muck people will take notice and it could help you later. If he calls you can use this to your advantage too and try a couple semi bluffs. I don't see how you can go wrong here, but, I value bet.

I think calling is correct.

I would at least call. Only hands to be worried about is 6-5, and a set one the cards on the board.

I think raising is the best option. Although it really depends on who you are playing and how much they know about poker.
