      Hey,

      Agasint somoene that calls so often, regular sized bets will definitely not work. You have to try out big bets and playing for stacks. That's the only spot where you can get people who tend to call a lot to sometimes fold because they don't want to put in all their money.

      In this specific hand, I think floating flop is fine but you can also consider raising sometimes since you only have a BD FD and over, he bets turn reasonably often judging by AFq and your hand cannot withstand a turn bet.

      Don't you think his fold cbet vs raise is quite low for a raise on the flop to be profitable?

      We have to raise to about 9.. We don't need him to fold often, we are just targetting air when doing this basically plus we still have our little BD and overcard equity. It's not much but if we add it to FE I think it should be +EV. That said, raising this flop is completely non-standard in a 3bet pot so most of our continuing range should call. If we raise we do so to avoid getting barreled and just taking the pot.
