      Should I c/c or c/f turn? I don't think that bet/f is an option, because he won't fold any hand which he called flop

      Stats, reads?
      Depending on villain, I play it the same way if he likes to float in 3b pots (then we induce a bet).

      But generally I would prefer bet/fold turn, since although the T changes nothing, villain also has to be worried we have Tx or a big pair and will also be folding his AK/AQ hands which is fine. If I bet turn, I ch/f river as I dont think he then has enough bluffs in his range.

      Once we check turn, we indicate a medium strength hand (we will normally barrel the fd instead of ch/calling it) and so a good villain may decide to just bet turn+river to get us off whatever we hold.

      As played, I fold the river too - although sometimes we are folding the best hand.

      I´d personally c/rai most of the time and reason for that is:
      - he is not calling too many hands with Tx, mostly some Txs hands, although he might also fold pf AT-T9s
      - players tend to float these boards, since very often you don´t have anything and then would take it down on the turn c-bet
      - also he would likely not call pf with 33/55, so
      I should be ahead there very often and really no reason to think he may not b/c there smt like 88 which he doesn´t really out more money in, unless he thinks it is no good and would turn it into bluff.
      And I´d also like to protect my hand against draws
