This hand is fine with me. With no straight/flush potential, 3rd set is gii every time.
Only 6 combos have us beat, versus a ton of TP, 2pair hands. Also, while we can't assume this, i think a lot of people are going to be 3-betting JJ, QQ.
The only reason a fold should ever even be considered at all is how dry the board is. He really doesn't have any strong draws at all that can get to a river and then fire out a bluff while you have been betting each street. Even with this in mind we are so strong that to fold means that we can give up near the absolute top of our range to a big river bet, which is bad.
As for flop and turn, i like the flop sizing just as this board has very little draw action, the turn is certainly a value spot and i think we should size up a tad bit, but that is really nit-pickey. I also like flatting the turn. Overall, nh.
