      He seems to fold a lot...
      A call here would be if you want to play fit or fold imho.
      You are going to play oop so you won't extract max value even if you catch trips.

      I'd raise preflop and bet big on flop so its expensive for him to raise.

      against potsize bet I would prefer c/f, since he would usually bet turn and you can´t be sure if you get free your river showdown
      Once you called flop I guess you have to call turn, since he should then be bluffing enough times

      Also you have option to lead out yourself on the flop and turn rather than c/c
      This way you´re protecting your hand against overcards and he may call with worse hands

      I disagree with raising preflop from an UTG raise. I think a call is fine because if you 3bet you isolate yourself against the top of his range and the best you're hoping for is TT or a flip.

      Postflop you can't fold that turn after calling flop. As Kaitz said, donking the flop could be a good idea.

      So do we have a fold if he raises our donk and wont a more aggro opponent bluff raise us of the best hand too often?
