      He can't have a straight and it's unlikely you get set-over-set'ed but he can and will have worse hands like overpairs/87 that can get scared by a bad turn card, as well as straight/flush draws that can simply improve to beat you. So you have nothing to gain by delaying the action unless he's on a pure bluff, which is possible given his stats. It's still relatively dangerous to try and let him hang himself on such a board because if he's raising crap he could very well take the free river card in position when we check the turn, so overall I prefer to just go with the value 3-bet.

      Turn is fine given that you just called the flop raise.

      Hope it helps.
