      Play for stacks, your hand is too good to just call small turn bet and check back river
      I´d raise turn 11$ and call shove.
      As played: shove river- you´re ahead and might get called by worse hands (likely any Ax hand).

      - Do I always go broke against a set here because of his stack size?
      - I figured his turn bet was a set looking for me to raise.
      - Do I go broke vs a set if he's a full stack?

      He would likely not play set this way and since he is likely not playing set that way you´re ahead and should play if possible for his stack.
      Even if he had full stack I´d raise turn for value. If he shoves then I´m folding, since I think he won´t do this with one pair hand

      What tells you he wouldn't play a set this way?
      How would he play it?

      I think players would very often c/r flop to get more money in and protect their hand
      And if he donks turn he isn´t going to bet 1/4 size of the pot.
      And he won´t go for river c/r.

      1- I think players would very often c/r flop to get more money in and protect their hand
      2- And if he donks turn he isn´t going to bet 1/4 size of the pot.
      3- And he won´t go for river c/r.
      1- At NL50 they rarely c/r sets from what Ive seen, its just so dam obvious on a dry flop.
      2- They sometimes do this to induce a raise and to not show too much strength
      3- I agree on this!

      I think 41/9 with 50bb doesn´t really think that level than you and I.
      If you think that he mostly has there set then taking your line is fine.
