      Villain is 40/20/1.9 over 50 hands.

      Flop: I was tired of people folding to my check/raises with sets on drawy boards and wanted to try donking to look like a weak pair/draw

      Turn: I was worried he might check behind overpairs on the river especially if a draw completed, and he might fold to a ~pot donk wheras on the turn I might have a draw? I'm not sure if villain thinks at all about my range (probably not) so maybe c/c turn but then what would be the best river option?

      Now I remember why I like c/r flop with sets - turn and river are usually very straight forward.

      You pick a line and stick with it. By following donk-call with check-raise, you are screaming "HI I HAVE A SET LOL".

      You should have either continued escalating on the flop (where villain could convince himself you are shoving JJ or a flush) IMO.

      no-one says you can´t bet/3-bet flop with set.
      If he has overpair and raise flop for value I doubt they are going to fold your 3-bet if you make it 16$
      Then you can bet 1/2 pot on the turn and shove river
      after you b/c flop, like your c/rai. Although he might b/f there overpairs you can´t c/c and then c/rai, since he could hold draw or he might check back himself on the river if he holds overpair.
