      Hello Alficor1,

      Preflop: I'd put a bigger 3bet here, ~$1.60 if not even bigger, since being OOP.
      Flop: Otherwise since it's 3bet and also according to his stack he doesn't seem to be that good either, I'd go broke most of the time. He could easily have some smaller PP, which he is willing to go broke on flop to protect from some overcards or draws.

      Here is the calculation:
      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 46,402% 44,248% 4,306% 51,445% TT+, 77-66, 33
      Player 2: 53,598% 51,445% 4,306% 44,248% KK

      You see that, we are even favourite against that kind of range.

      Best regards.
