      This hand has really been bothering me. Villain is Unknown. Should I be going broke with TPTK? I was putting him on a nut flush draw.

      I'd fold to the 3bet on the flop.
      People are not bluffing too much in general and you can rep a lot of hands on this board.
      Since your range for calling in the SB preflop is weighted towards broadway cards and PPs (and you don't checkraise the PPs), he should be even less inclined to assume you're somehow bluffing.

      Therefore I'd expect his range to be something like {JJ+,AQ, some strong FDs}.
      Vs the FDs and AQ you're more or less flipping, vs JJ+ you're crushed.

      P.S.: Please don't post results.
