      Hello ragney,

      Preflop: Rather just fold the hand to his 3bet unless you have a good reason to continue here.

      As played
      Postflop: Calling could also be considerable but also raising is totally fine to gain at least some protection. Just the problem is that he will fold a lot weaker hands and wont bluff anymore, while he could still try 2nd barreling against us with bluffs.

      Best regards.

      I am not folding with such hand IP as he is a regular who bluff 3bet from time to time. (9% 3bet)

      Actually 9% ain't that high but of course as we take a look at his BBvsSteal I'd say that he is 3betting even bigger on blinds, therefore the reason you pointed out should be considerable. Just hopefully you wont do mistakes playing postflop, for to check them post the hands.
