If I can get him to fold Axs there, he's giving up 32% equity, but getting about that to call, so it's fairly neutral if he calls or not with it, and he definitely is calling with AQ. In the rare chance I'm against a worse set, then I'm sitting pretty. So not seeing a benefit in jamming turn (although it's not terrible), unless I'm scared he's capable of bluffing me on the river.
You're 49/51 (basically 50/50) against the worst possible hands you're facing.

But villain's range contains sooo much more than that worse hand. So your equity against his range is really good.

Do you really think the villain is going to fold to your jam MORE often than he would bluff a missed draw?

A lot of rivers are going to kill your action because they improve your range, but don't improve his hand. E.g., if the board pairs, or a flush comes, or 4-to-a-straight.

If the river makes "a" hand, but not "his" hand, then villain is definitely going to give up >0%. So you'll see river check-check a lot and miss your chance to get his money in while he's live.

Re: Deep against a maniac with top set

I think this because as described, I can see villain with endless amounts of: KJ KT JT JJ K3 J3 T3 33 hands, filled with assorted straight & flush draws.

The are the hands where if your check-raise him all in, he's got 2 possible conclusions:

1. Mistakenly thinking he's ahead with his marginal made hands
2. Correctly thinking he's behind but correctly hoping he can catch up by hitting one of random draws

Whether he hits or not, most of his range is going to remain middle-strength-with-showdown-value after the river, and much less likely to be turned into a bluff.
