      He seems to be defending to a lot of 3bets, it's not unreasonable to believe that he has some sort of speculative hands like suited connectors and small pocket pairs together with the usual 88+/AQ core when he calls preflop.

      He called your flop c-bet with another player left to act tho, giving you a strong indication that you're beat already or that he's at least drawing to a lock with something like QJs or TT, and when the J comes on the turn i feel like his whole range including speculative suited connectors as you smoked.

      On the river, he already c/c two streets on a board that is quite drawy even for a 3bet pot and now he open shoves into you. He can't expect you to ever call that without at least TPTK if he has a hand, and i won't believe floating the flop oop 3-way planning to take you off your hand if you show weakness is even remotely possible until is see him do it. I think he has at least JJ for 2nd pair + GS on the flop and now 2nd set, most likely a T with either TT or JTs.

      We're getting almost 3:1 but i don't think we're good here ever.

      I think he shouldn´t raise/call 3-bet oop with Tx to many times
      so I´d likely shove turn for value, although check behind and deciding on the river is also fine.

      I am not concerned for Tx hands, then for 88+ hands
