      Given positions and board, I don't think he folds often enough to cbet here... Your equity is probably like 15% with overs but you are still OOP and have tough plays on 90% of turns.. I think it's fine to give up here with almost complete air and only continue with better equity (backdoors, gutshots, pairs like A6 is even fine to turn into a bluff sometimes here imo, etc.)
