      No I don't think so.

      Two draws have hit. If you check/call you don't know where you stand. River will be very difficult since he can get max value from you, unless you hit full house. If you bet river he could raise you there.
      I would use the same line.

      I don't need to know where I stand usually in such situations and generally in poker :) because it's game of math, sometimes of course it's good to. He won't call with many worse hand, even AJ wouldn't imo.

      Uhm... your out of position. If you check/call you would not know if he has flush or Jx.

      So lets say you c/c turn. Whats your river line?

      Check/fold big river bet UI, but he might be bluffing after I took this lane, this is the problem, however he won't bet made hands other than flush prolly, he can be bluffing with busto street draws or low pairs if he floated.

      Folding is correct if you bet the turn and get raised like this for sure.

      Given that you both have 90BB behind, if you suspect he may pull this move, either with the made hand or as a bluff, checking here is not so bad. Your set is well disguised. You have ten outs, and reasonable prospects of stacking him if one comes in, so on odds and outs alone, a check call on the turn can be ok. If he is aggressive, and you think he can pull this as a bluff, c/r the turn can be good, but you have to know his tendencies well.

      His overbet is fishy, but that is hard to read. A lot of overbets lately for me have been the nutz pretending to be a bluff.

      Imo once you bet you should likely shove, since he could also do that with two pair, pair+ draw and so on.
      If you don´t want to play stacsk then I would rather take c/c line on the turn and c/c a lot of rivers.
