      What's his fold to 3bet stat?

      If his range is strong (mainly 99-QQ & big Aces), you can check/raise the turn for value. If his range is weaker (meaning he can have a lot of draws or pair+draws like JT & 87), you should bet yourself for value.

      I don't generally expect too many complete floats in 3bet pots, so inducing won't do much good.

      As played, the river is awkward, but if we think about it, there's not many boats he'd realistically play this way (only 77 really). He might have JT though. Therefore, I wouldn't want to bet/fold, b/c I'd be afraid to be raised by worse hands (either for value or as an unlikely bluff). So check/calling seems fine.

      His fold to 3bet is 43% and his attempt to steal from button is 33%, so his range should be something like JJ-55, AQs-A9s, A5s, K9s+, QTs+, JTs, T9s, 98s, 87s, AQo-ATo, KJo+ excluding AA KK AK and QQ with i would be probably 4betted. At the turn i wanted to c/r for exctract more value from hands like 78s TT JJ 56 JTs that would probably semibluff here. Thanks for the answer.

      since board didn´t change I think betting turn is better than going for c/r
      c/c river is fine, but I think I like c/rai more, since he can easily b/c there with two pair and it is hard you to put in on Tx
      Also you can conisder betting out yourself since if he has showdown value, like one pair hand he would often also check behind, since you´re calling with overpairs a lot of times and fold Ax hands
