      3betting BTN raise pre is fine, but I'd give up flop usually. I doubt we will be able to fold two ppl here often enough to make it work. If it was HU pot with BTN, I'd definitely cbet.
      I think we can't be generally wrong if we decide to give it up and avoid barreling much better hands with no chance of folding. Board is rather dry (for 3bet pot), so I don't expect him to have any draws here, so if we cbet flop and decide to bet turn we should be at least some clue if he will fold hands like 99/TT/JJ here often enough to make it work.

      Good luck!
