      I think you make a decision on the flop whether he has a set or not. If you believe he does, I would fold to that reraise, otherwise you're wasting money as you know he is probably not bluffing in this instance. If you believe he does not have a set then you're most likely ahead and should play for stacks. It depends on your history with him and how he plays the hand.

      As played, I assume he has ATs+, AJo+ or 99+ as lots of people won't let go of these hands.

      You dominate much of this range so I might opt to go broke here.

      Hello maheepsangari,

      Nah, I am not planning to fold my hand here as long I went for 3bet-value preflop. I would be calling of on the turn. Either way ship the flop or if you expect him even to bluff and maybe ship turn you can as well Call it. Although I doubt that he is going to bluff much.

      Best Regards.
