Villain has tag stats AF of 5. I think his c/r range is mainly made out of flush and straight draws, with some 66 and 77. When he check back on turn I feel more confident this is the case and I bet for value, he raises again which is somewhat confusing as I expect sets to continue to bet because of all the draws. If the turn bricked and he shoved I think I was going to call and expected a lot of busted draws and check back if he checked. What do you guys think of betting turn? Should I check back?

I'd honestly be tempted to fold the turn. We won't be happy with most rivers and will have to fold anyway.

I like your betting line, would bet the turn a little bigger. As played I think we should fold the turn 100% as a double check/raise is so rare and so strong that I never feel bluffed/semibluffed here often enough to continue with a weak and vulnerable top pair type hand.
