      I think the 3bet pre is fine and probably better than a call. But a call wouldn't be unheard of either. Please note the 3bet is as a bluff rather than for value as the hands that call your 3bet will usually dominate your hand.

      What is your 3bet/squeeze %, from blinds specifically?
      What is buttons raise post flop?

      If you have a normallish 8%-10% 3bet range then I don't think your post flop range is perceived wide enough to bluff raise, therefore making his range nutted if he is a normal or tightish reg. Making this a fold.

      Some wild regs are over aggro and may raise Gutshots: AJo, AT, KJ, KT which would make this a call. Then check fold turn as you won't be perceived to be folding anything after calling flop raise.

      I think re shipping is never good. Not enough folding. Not enough worse calling.
