      Hard to say without knowing how tight he is. When he c-bets that flop is most likely hand is an overpair, sometimes he'll have AdKd too.

      Basically if you think you can make him lay down an overpair there take the line that you think looks stronger to him. If you don't (most tags aren't folding an overpair in a 3bet pot ever), then i'd say you're better off taking the immediate 3:1 odds on the turn with your likely 14 outs, since you will stack him if you get there with your T/J outs for sure, and probably get at least another bet out of him on a flushing card too.

      Don't make the mistake of overestimating your fold equity against those guys especially in 3bet pots, the fishier they are the worse they handread, which means actions that should scare them, usually don't.

      Hope it helps.
