      Question is do I need to go broke here?
      Should I call flop to make him bet with weaker hands on the turn?

      had not enough hands of Villians hands to call it relevant (about 30 hands)

      - you´re top of your range, so you can´t really fold flop. So either b/c flop and getting all-in on the turn (or sometimes folding) or 3-betting flop should be there standard lines.
      You always can choose weaker hands to get away
