      Preflop: Hero is BB with A 5
      2 folds, CO raises to $1, 2 folds, Hero raises to $3.50, CO calls $2.50

      Flop: ($7.25) K K Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $4, CO raises to $8, Hero raises to $18, CO raises to $45.70 and is all-in, Hero folds

      $43.25 pot ($2.16 rake)
      Final Board: K K Q
      CO mucked and won $41.09 ($19.59 net)

      even against minraise, should I fold?
      moreover, should I bluff 3b against this opponent?

      If he doesn't fold to 3bets almost ever this is a 3bet for value since he calls a lot worse than A high. Your postflop line is bad though imo. Cbetting is fine but after you get raised just give up. You have too weak of a hand OOP to do much. If you had Kx you would probably not 3bet flop with all of those combos either.
