      After a small CB on this board I asume he didn't hit much and I just called to keep his worse hands in play. '
      On the turn he bets pot and I don't know exactly if he has a monster or he read weakness in my call and now decides to bluff putting me on a draw.
      On the river I have the same problem as on the turn, when he pots it again after I check to him.
      Should this be a fold or a call in your opinion?

      I would prefer leading there instead of playing guessing game. If I take your line I would call him down, since only better hand that point I have sets that I might not have played that way, so I need to protect my c/c range (If I would c/f AJ that point, what hands would I really call him down?- if answer is only sets, then he can barrel me relentlessly by any 2 cards)

      best regards,
