      here his line seem to tell me he could have a set. Should i fold on the turn? or still shove it ?

      Probably should have folded to the shove as anything that re-raises on that turn has got to be able to beat an overpair.

      It would be good to see the relative suits of the cards as I believe your turn bet was bigger than it had to be too. Im probably betting only half pot for info on a bet-fold line into what I think is a flopped set. Would have saved you about 6 bucks.

      Please use another button from Elephant which pastes suits also and normal format.
      But as played:
      Preflop: OK.
      Flop: OK.
      Turn: Bet/Fold. And also the bet size is too big. If you had pretty drawy board like suited cards and so then you can make such a bet to protect your hand and also get value from draws.

      And also he seems to pretty tight player, I don't think he is bluffing on turn. You can also check his AF, that's low also.
