maybe raise all in on the turn? I still can't believe somebody would call your raise on the turn with bottom pair!?!? They got lucky, you'll have the chips next time around...

You bet just under 1/2 pot on the flop. A caller could be some one playing two overcards or someone milking a set. Since the board is a rainbow and only slightly scary (but I have seen raises called with 76s) bet the pot on the flop. That will destroy the value of the drawing hands, instead of merely denting it.

The second caller is making the right play (with 4:1 pot odds) to call with a wide range of hands.

All-in or fold to the bet on the turn.

A basic principle that most players break at PSO is that they flat call when that would then make the pot size around the same amount as what is left to be bet on the next round. Usually a no-no.
