      I really would want to 3bet this CO for value because he does not fold to 3bets and does not fold to cbets.

      For that reason I dont bluff vs him.

      The bad thing is - if he 4bets, I am then really in a bad shape and have to throw out the hand because until now he did not show that he is 4beting. So it would suck to run into QQ+, AK range.

      I think the call is never bad, but only want to ask if 3bet can be good.

      call is never bad, I agree.

      Whether you can 3bet or not depends a bit on the image you have. Basically, I would like to seem capable of 3betting reasonably wide against him before I do it for value with JJ. If you haven't 3bet him before, just calling seems better. If you have 3bet him a couple of times, I think you can 3bet this for value as well.
