      3-bet/fold (or call when given set value) preflop for the reason you indicated.
      Flop is fine as played, though a double barrel calldown if facing semilow bets wouldn't be too bad either.

      Hi Glazenburg,
      Sorry for the delay.
      Preflop you can either 3-bet or call for set value, depending on your opponent and on how comfortable you are playing big pots post-flop.
      On the flop, you also have two options, either raise like you did, or call down (as long as the bets are small and the board harmless)

      Regards,
      Craig
