      I dont think you have enought implieds to call for set value

      I prefer 3bet preflop, and you dont have to c-bet every ugly flop if get called

      Preflop: Easy call for set mining.
      Flop: No hit, Check/Fold.
      Turn: I like to Check/Fold here also, don't put yourself into hard decisions, you weren't the preflop aggressor so don't bet.
      River: Check/Fold.

      Best regards,

      It's not such an easy call for set mining. The "call20" rule is not something so absolute. Especially as you go to higher limits, you can't think you're gonna stack off sets so easily. This guy for example won't stack off without a very good reason too. Not only you have to hit your set here, but your opp must also have hit something better than TP/TK to stack off.

      I'm not saying you can't call. But calling here is not only about set mining. You can of course make a move on the right flop when you don't hit.

      You gotta mix things up. 3bet some pocket pairs, call some others and so on. But I'd probably start 3betting here.
