      I would have called. When he just calls your 3 bet you can take QQ+ and AK out of his range. He could be shoving with 88-TT thinking he has the best hand against which folding would be disastrous. He can't really have a hand there that has you beat other than some weird 3x, 57s or 46s all of which are unlikely given that you 3 bet pre. He could be shoving some flush draws like KQh or ATh, so I would call.

      yea, easy call with Jj that spot. 88 it would be closer, but since I think his hand range are some kind of Ax of hearts that he floated flop I would likely also b/c there with any pair. I see no reason why he should shove there boats or trips.

      best regards,
