      Do you call the river in this spot? It`s not the worst flop for 3 barrels?

      Preflop: What's your image? Do you 3bet a ton? Does he 4bet a lot? 3betting 99 for value could be an option. Flatting is certainly fine if you have a tighter image.

      River: I think folding here is fine, his size seems to be for value and I don't think he barrel bluffs that often. I don't think shoving is an option when we can't really rep JJ and TT since we should be 3betting that preflop. I might if the Turn and River cards were lower, or if this guy was raising from UTG (which would then allow us to have these JJ/TT preflop cos we wouldn't 3bet preflop).
