      Prior to this hand I had seen villain going broke about 5 times after 3 barreling or calling 3 streets with A high, a pair of tens on boards with obvious completed flushes etc.

      Any reason not to go broke with a set?

      Well do keep in mind that him 3-barreling with initiative or check/calling down A-high is somewhat different from him taking one of the strongest lines out there by check/call check/~minraising. Some players will have an overall skewed idea of hand values, while others will still only take that line with monsters.

      That said in that spot I don't think it's that relevant, you have top set against a known loose fish and already a whole bunch of money in the pot. Even if you're wrong you still have 10 outs, I don't think you have another option except shoving the turn.

      Hope it helps.
