      This was the 4th time in about 8 hands, villain 3-betted me. I had the idea he was taking advantage of me, so this seemed like an OK hand to anticipate on the situation.

      Preflop I had three options: fold, call (maybe to weak?) or 4-bet/fold.
      I didn't want to fold again, as he might 3-bet complete crap against me.

      I was thinking of 4-betting, but I thought: We are a little deeper and I can outplay him in this position, instead of risking a 5-bet.

      Well, I called. Flop wasn't good, but I floated to bet any turn. The turn was positive, but an all-in would just isolate me against his better hands. I would've call a river bet too. But I didn't see any value in a river bet after his check.

      Preflop I prefer 4bet/folding rather than calling. Our hand is dominated and it plays quite poorly in 3bet pots.

      As played preflop, I prefer folding on the flop.
      On the turn calling is good.

      We could consider shoving the river just in case he decides to check/call something like KT or AQ but without information checking behind is fine.
