      This is definitely a spot good for slowplaying.

      1. No bad turn cards in the deck for you - It's not like the board is 9:s8:d5 whereby you wouldn't want to see a 6/7/
      2. When you have top set (i guess it's less relevant when your top set is a low card), it's harder for villain to have top pair so slowplaying is better
      3. Protects weaker hands in your range - If you never have sets here, villain can multi-barrel and put a ton of pressure on you
      4. Allows villain to catch up with his overcards - If the turn brings an Ace or King, he may either bluff at them, or improve to top pair. Either case, you will probably win another bet from him.
