      He is very aggro postflop when he has initiative, I almost never saw him doing anything else than bet bet bet large.

      his raise flop is 6% (3/50 times), so could I even find a fold on flop? Also I saw him playing fd aggresive. By looking at his history hands, he bets close to pot size when he hits the board (also with draws), and bets 1/2 when he bluffs.

      so give up on turn, where I win only vs bluff?

      What about 3betting flop? You have a set, his range only has 6 hands better than yours, he will c/r more than that for value and as a bluff anyway. I would not call flop to fold almost ever. You should not forget that you have stacks behind to play on the river as well, you have equity.

      I would personally play like you.. If we miss river it gets a bit tough but we can calculate based on pot odds and his range... It probably still remains a call, our hand is also heavily under-represented when we just call flop.
