55 flop a set in 2/5 game - how would you maximize value?

Hero - 30s asian male. Nit. Played 3 hands in 1.5 hours. Haven't shown down any. CO (530) hand 5s5c

V1 - early 50s white male. Very nice guy but has been getting beat up by v2. Plays a loose passive game. UTG (350)

V2 - 80s Asian male. Nit. Rarely bluffs. Has taken v1 to value town. Btn (1400)

Preflop: v1 utg limps, LJ raises to 15, hero calls, v2 btn calls
Flop: 578r ck to v2 bets 45, v1 call, v2 call
Turn: A ck to v2 bets 125, v1 tanks for 3 min and calls, hero???

Would love thoughts on flop and turn. Too dangerous to x/c flop? Call, raise, jam turn?

Thanks

Rewrite the action.

Slowly, with care.

Leave spaces.

I'm assuming you checked the flop and only called? With three callers I'm 100% raising here. I'm also jamming the turn as played.

You should raise the flop. You have two callers and there are a lot of draws that they can call you with. There are also several scare cards that can come on the turn to kill your action.

As played, the turn is a shove. V1 is pot committed, so he's not folding. If V2 has you beat, it's a cooler and you should just move on to the next one.

Grunch from title alone, bet out every street.

OK, off to read post now.

After reading post edit: wat? Looks like you check/called flop? Horribad if so. You have a likely gambly image and a loose/passive V behind. Just bet.

AP, GII OTT.

As played, jam turn with $460 left into pot of ~$490.

Bet flop and turn.

Next post, please indicate pot amount$ which will help provide u better feedback.

I'm ok with a flop call, but with your image you should raise. Raise turn every time, it isn't a scary card, in fact it might get you paid. Run them draws off on the turn card.
