I like this, though I'd probably make it $50 to encourage our villain to shove if he's going to call.
We're 33/66 against a set and 41/60 vs T9, and those are worst case. I'd like to either get it in on the flop where we're a favorite over his range, or have villain fold a better made hand, which I think he does quite often.
