      TBH I don't really know how to play hands like this against tight opponents, when the board is low, and he keeps betting. Should i just fold the flop or is it fine to go broke?

      Hey JCseerup,

      Your opponent looks on the tight side. When he 3bets you here you will likely be behind his range. The best option is probably to fold preflop.

      The best option on the flop is to call one street out of position. Villain will likely fire one street with AJ-AK etc and give up. When he barrels the turn he more often has the QQ-AA part of his range, so check/call flop check/fold turn is fine.

      If you were going to go broke, (which I don't recommend in this spot), the best option would likely be to call the turn rather than raise; you allow your opponent to bluff the river this way and can sometimes see a showdown more cheaply if opponent checks back the river.
