      I'd make it $3 on flop, c/b turn for bluff induce and call a reasonable river bet. an ace could very well be in his range but i don't see him having a 9 calling a 3bet oop pre with just 100BB, maybe A9s/A8s in this spot. with 88/44 he would take call/call/donk i guess, or he would already have c/r you on flop due to the drawy board - if you c/b turn he will bet river with busted draws here often aswell.

      I think there is nothing wrong taking pot control on the turn, but if you decide to bet then i like a lot more bet/shove than bet call and then folding to river shove
      your hand is too good in 3-bet pot to fold overpair once you bet on the turn
