      How to counter him? Tighten up 3bet range and play strong even OOP?

      and in this situation, Should I fold flop because of board structure?

      Hello Gonchan,

      Preflop: You will rarely play profitable enough with your 3bet here with such hands. Nor we don't have fold equity with the 3bet and most likely not that many postflop. Just fold and wait for a better spot?

      As played
      Postflop: Not the best board to CB cause I assume such a guy is very often flaoting such flops nor you can't represent much.

      Best Regards.
