      pre I called cause there is probably no value in 3beting him oop and bb was nit.
      Would you ever 3b that in such situation, for not having capped range?

      On flop I called, with plan to call most turns and probably fold river. He looks like he is capable of bluffing Turn but without read or history I dont think I can bluffcatch River.
      Turn as planned.
      What do you think about donking that river hoping him to muck TP and overpairs?
      Maybe against him it would be better to donk with value hands on that river cause hes got high WTS and low W$ and he could not muck AQ or AA.

      At the end I think he should barrel that river too knowing I will have hard time calling KQ, AQ, JJ, TT or just cb and give up since turn.

      Preflop: I would 3b here in the SB if the PFR is a good player. Basically your calling range is going to be highly restricted and narrowly defined, which makes it really easy to play against you. I would 3b here mainly for playability reasons.

      Calling is fine too, but a good player will be able to make very good decisions vs your obvious range of mid pairs and AQ/KQs/AJs. If I were in the BB I would call.

      Postfop: you played it fine, definitely not folding a mid pair when there are so many draws on the Turn.
