      Black Mariah is the scariest card in the deck that could come on the turn... turning my set into junk? ANyway, my plans to C/R flop and bet turn become C/C turn.

      I wouldn´t suggest limp/calling pf with loow pp-s, you would often end up c/f and if you hit your set then often times they don´t have strong enough hands to pay you off
      my line is to lead out on the flop and get all-in if someone raises
      I´d likely would valuebet river, since I think you´re often ahead there and he´d c/c with worse hands
