      Hello MisClick,

      The problem is that if you are calling that far till the river then there is not much to do, only mistake which is done is rather ship the river yourself while he will call anyways hands vs the raise or either an all-in.

      Another possibility would be to raise the flop and play more aggressively your hand but which would mean that we would plan to fold to the 3bet but there I would also his range being very strong if he decides to 3bet you.

      Best Regards.
