Looks fairly standard, but I just get it in on the flop when he raises.
You have top set, which is the nuts on that flop, but if villain is raising with a straight draw, a lower set or 2 pair, take him to valuetown. Villains are seldom folding to flop 3-bets after raising, so jam it in and print money against a hand that is always a big underdog against you.
In short, there's just no need to get tricky and slowplay here. There are some ugly cards that can come that will mean you end up with a tricky decision if you let villain see more cards, so... just go with it when your equity is greatest.

Hi kingkong,

I agree with Arty... it is unlikely the villain is going to raise and then fold to a (normal) 3b on the flop, and if he's got JT, TT, or 44 it's better to get him in the middle directly on the flop before something like a Q comes off and scares him (he'll be worried about AK).

I don't prefer jamming however, we c-bet .29, he's raised to .57, and has $5.36 behind. I think jamming for this much is too big an overbet. Sure he'll stack in sets for even this bet size, but that doesn't really matter as he's stacking sets no matter what bet sizing line we chose. If he happens to have a hand like AJ, he won't be able to fold to a lessor amount but might find a fold vs. a jam... something like $1.85 to go is nice. If he calls there will be $4.20 in the pot and $3.99 left to bet which makes it easy to get stacks in before the river. It also gives him room to semi-bluff shove KQ over your 3b (rather than having to call off the overbet on a draw), or spazz out with bluffs in the event he's got any in his flop raising range here.

I'm not sure why.

What's his range of hands for flatting your preflop raise, then raising this flop texture?

The range you construct will have 5 basic components:

-Big hands (sets and JT): calling any reraise size (or jamming over the top of your reraise)
-Good but not great made hands (QQ, AJ, strong 1 pair type holdings): Generally never raise/folding the flop to a normal sized reraise. May fold to an overbet jam on the flop, depending on opponent and how strong (more likely to fold AJ than a preflop slowplayed AA for example).
-Weak made hands (AT, J9): Was just making a move raising the flop, may peel once for a normal sized reraise, may fold. Will fold to a jam.
-Draws (KQ, Q9, 98): Probably calling a normal sized reraise, and drawing to 1 card as they'll be confronted with another bet on the turn. May fold to an overbet jam on the flop
-Bluffs: Will fold to any size reraise.
