      why reraise so big ? only better hands will call . you could call and re-evaluate on the turn. he could be on a flush draw but it's rather unlikely.

      so i should have reraised him smaller?? the standard raise is 4 times, isn't it?
      when should i raise less than that?

      I think you should just call his raise on turn and then check/call the river.

      With such action u should keep pot smaller and avoid his all-in.

      actually i don't like the reraise i would just call but that's just me. you could just minraise again which looks like you want to give him good odds to call so you are quite strong. either way you fold again after he raises your reraise and you gain information you want about his hand.

      you reraise big when : you want to ger more value (build a large pot) or drive out of the pot the opponent with a bluff(you need sufficient reads for that). This is not the case here.

      Don´t turn your hand into bluff once you 3-bet you have to call shove.
      I wouldn´t 3-bet flop, but rather call ip and see aht he does on the turn- meaning would call any reasonable turn bet and then decide on the river if I want to call river shove.
