      Flop: Calling is standard, we have great equity vs his missed overcards.
      Turn: Folding is standard without reads. You can call here if u think he barrels overcards here really often. I would assume most people don't do that cos the Turn is a blank and doesn't really change the board too much. Thus his range would be more weighted towards overpairs and sets and you have to fold if thats the case.

      I don't think calling to purely set mine and play fit/fold is a good idea in most cases, unless you think villain has a really ultra tight range (like 2% 3bet for example, so you can fit/fold in 3bet pots vs such a guy)
