      Tough to say without reads, 26/13 over 23 hands could be anything.

      If he looks like a tag :

      He is likely 3betting JJ+ preflop because just calling sucks with a limper, as it's likely gonna hand up behind a 3way pot, so he can't be that confident in his 99-TT overpair that he wants to stack off with it here.

      He also knows that unless you have a big pair, you totally missed that flop, so he probably thinks it's a good flop for him to make a move on and (semi-)bluffraise you. Given that a set is hard to flop and you're in position, i would call that raise and see what he does on the turn. Unless he committed himself to a multistreet bluff, he'll likely tell you exactly what his hand is comes the turn card. If it's a club i'm folding to a bet, probably same thing if it's a blank and he open shoves.

      If he looks fishy :

      He could have coldcalled anything from the blinds and be spazzing out with any overpair or top pair. There are a lot more of those than sets, so i'm not folding. Given that it's somewhat dry because i wouldn't expect a fish to raise a flushdraw and that i have position, i will likely just call to give him a chance to put more money in the pot in his own terms. Unless i see him as a guy who doesn't like to be bluffed off an overpair, in which case i might just shove over and expect a call from worse hands all day long.

      Hope that helps.

      against unknown I´d likely not like to fold aces, at least on the flop.
      So I´d bet/call flop, since you´re ip and evaluate on the turn
      It also helps that you have A :club: , which could win pot if he has there smt like set.
      When you call then pot is 29$ and imo it is very hard to bluff again with complete air, but when he decides to bet 20$ with blank turn, then I´d likely shove, since his c/r, lead value range is mostly sets and there are a lot of draws that he could hold.
