did i play this optimally? i guess betting OTT when he checked OTT i can check behind in case he checking flush/straight, and hope to make fullhouse?! or should i be bet/calling turn show?! cuz if i bet OTT he prob get scared (prob not , cuz he calling OTF T32 w/ KT hmm...)

actually would it be good to slowplay or raise bigger OTF?

It's always a nice problem to have when you flop a set and get bet into

I think both raising or calling are fine but I would probably lean towards slowplaying here. The board is pretty harmless apart from the club draw. I'd like one of the other two villains to come along or maybe even raise over the top.

Having said that I think your raise is also fine, although I'd make it bigger, something like $2.90 so it's easier to play for stacks on later streets.

Of course the scary club comes. However I think club draws make up a relatively small part of villain's range, I think Tx, 44-99 and even JJ/QQ are also well in his range.

I would just continue to value bet the turn intending to play for stacks. Even if he does have a flush, you still have outs.

I think raising the river is fine for some thin value, but I much prefer the bet on the turn as it is easier to play for stacks that way.
