      Well this is opponent dependant. His range is full of busted draws and p/p.
      Will villian fold 55-77 and maybe 99 if u bet?
      Will villian bet river with a busted draw if u check?

      hmm here since all draws missed I think he is easily calling with 99 and maybe even 55/66 or 8x.I mean they will fold sometimes but you don't get good odds to make the bluff profitable as he will be calling them most of the time I think.On the other side he might be holding a draws himself which might beat your hand or will bluff you off on the river.This play is fine as long as you decided to do it.When you decide to cbet you should be sure what are you going to do on the flop,turn,and river regardless most of the cards e.g. If you decide he is holding a draw there I will cbet 3barrel all day long.It's a tough spot though.

      You have no equity here (exept our OC) this is why I don't like cbet, and turn is one of the worst card of the deck, this 3 change nothing exept diminuate your combo of set.

      River is still not a good bluffcard too, FD missed... and that's just what you represent. you can have overpair obv, but in BvB I don't care a lot about it and villain can think like me...

      Once he calls turn i think he won´t fold river that often
      So I´d rather take c/f line
      if you want some fold equity then you can try shoving river although it seems kind of spewy
