      villain is 15/14/1 over 60 hands. obviously he is some taggish grinder because he was playing 12 tables. against a grinder to u b/f turn when everthing completes. river is no brainer c/f i guess

      Wuch ... yep that is a really sick spot !

      You may avoid this by blocking bet river I think, bet 10 / fold.

      I don't think he can have T9 or higher sets, every 12 tabling tag gets the concept of protection on that flop at nl50 by now. You probably spooked his flushdraw by c-betting pot, which on that flop basically announced "i have an overpair or better and i'm not folding right now". With no fold equity he probably decided he'd rather not bloat the pot in case he didn't hit and go for a check/call check/fold line on a blank turn.

      You can probably get away with betting smaller on the turn, like 2/3pot will do, you're not really protecting from anything anymore, everything got there already and worse hands than yours will be afraid of that. Still anything with a big club will call again, and you can still boat up, so bet/folding is fine.

      On the river i don't think you beat anything that will call a bet, and he probably won't bet anything that's worse than your hand. Check/folding is fine.

      Hope it helps.
