      I'd likely just c-bet less in a 3bet pot since he doesn't know our standard yet, and just c/f the turn even tho him potting the turn is weird.

      His range for doing that is either a pure float or something like AQ/KQ. I don't think he'd pot a pocket pair when it looks like he's pretty much won already, since tags are giving up with 6 outs there often. When they aren't, they are check/shoving, so unless he's merging a pocket pair there expecting you to check/shove some kind of bad redraw (which is probably way above the head of the common nl50 tag), you have a bluff-catcher.

      It's entirely possible for him to be making a move in this steal situation, but few players at nl50 will actually start floating you in a reraised pot right off the bat and risk $28 on the turn with a bluff when $18 would have pretty much the same effect. Unless you're willing to make a stand / get a long term read there for a stack against a fellow reg, i wouldn't risk it.

      Hope it helps.
