      I am abit confused by this hand

      I dont know what I do, to be frank

      Villian stats 18/14/3.7, have a tendency to 3bar if he continues on the turn.

      I think flop and turn would be standard. You can put more pressure him by raising flop, but I think call is also fine, since he would very often barrel on K and A turns.

      River is close, it mostly seems like valuebet. If we take that he has there complete 14% then he is ahead your range:

      board: 5TQJ7
      Hand Equity Wins Ties
      KJ 41.75% 235,486 29,992
      14% 58.25% 334,522 29,992

      And he would likely not barrel 22-44 and 66-88 on the turn+ he would likely not valuebet Tx hands, so I think river fold is better than call.

      You can consider raising there, but then you should also slowplay your made hands as two pair, sets and straights on the turn.
