      Hello musabasjoo,

      Preflop: Raise for value, I don't like to slowplay at all here.

      As played
      Flop: I'd even raise bigger ~$1,20.
      Turn: And not much you can do here, he may easily as well even have worse sets or even 2pairs and never know those opponents, they might as well have a pair+draw or whatsoever. Going broke as well.

      Best regards.
