      Preflop is close and depends on his UTG-openingrange.
      Generally without history and on the BU I tend to call because we'll have position and can still outplay him postflop.

      As played I think you should check back the flop, probably giving up right away.
      A lot of opponents will c/c their AK in this spot and obv not fold any Jx or QQ+ they happened to call pre.
      So I'd expect to have very little foldequity on this flop.

      After he c/calls his range remains pretty strong, so the best play on the turn is still to give up.
      But again: I believe the flop-cbet is -EV and you should generally not just cbet the flop because you happened to be the 3bettor preflop, always look at the opponents range and figure out if you have foldequity first.
