      Hi,

      I think we shouldn´t fold that spot, so that leaves either call or 3-bet.
      3-bet and getting all-in is fine, if he is c/r for value with worse hands and stack off (for example QxJh), but since he would likely either lead or c/c these hands I think better option would be calling flop (that would also keep in his bluffs) and then see what he does on the turn.

      I´d likely also not fold to turn barrel, unless I feel he would mostly bet there for value and barrel big on the turn. He should also have in his range AhJx, AhTx type hands so it is hard to assume we´re always behind, although most of his c/r range and big leading range are sets or flushes.
