      Hello,
      villain was completely unknown, by that time we played several hands together (maybe something like 2 orbits)...
      How should I plan this hand? Its hard to define strength of the hand...
      I folded river because I dont expect most ppl bluff off deep stack or vbet JJ, TT, etc, this looks shove for value so much ?(

      Since you opened UTG and he 3-bet Sb I think you can´t call him down. He can sometimes have AKdd or AKss, but even then I doubt he would pot river.
      What you can do is to raise/fold likely on the flop. Since you can´t call him down you can always raise for value yourself and I think he would give you enough credit that he would only shove over your raise AsKs, call JJ-AA (since you likely are bluffing) and fold everything less.
      Then you can take your free turn card and call river bet. This way you don´t loose so much against KK/AA if you calling him down.

      Dont you think that you can induce a reraise by a worse hand when you make reraise on that dry board? Thinking oponents might think "why he should reraise me on the flop if he has a hand, why dont he want me to keep barreling with bluffs", drawss, etc? They might put me on AK and shove it or put me on a flush draw and shove it

      that is always one risk and if you were 100bb deep I´m fine raising flop and playing for stacks, but being 150bb deep I think he would not really shove over your 14$ raise another 59$, but rather would give up or play cautiously. If you´re not comfortable raise/folding, I think calling flop and going from there is always fine, but if he keeps barreling you´re still at quite thought spot.
