      Here I dislike your 3bet. You don't want to play a dominated hand OOP with 200bb stacks.

      Just call and play a small pot.

      Postflop I don't see a good reason not to cbet.

      Depending on steal % I can even just let this go pre. We're just never going to extract much on K/Jxxx boards unless we're behind.

      Calling is ok but, again, we want to see Kxx boards or Jxx boards even though villain never pays us off well unless we're beaten.

      Note that it's a minraise on the button.

      We do dominate some Kx and Jx hands in his opening range.

      Which presumably gives more reason to call pre as we can fold them out with the 3b ?

      his min-raise isn´t really almost too strong so I think we can 3-bet pf for value if we don´t expect he would mess around too much either 4-betting or raising a lot of flops.
      With backdoor flushdraw, overcard and some backdoor straightdraws I would c-bet that pot.
      I think he would fold there smt like 55 and very likely Ax hands
      Turn and river are fine
