      Strange played, He reraise u preflop, u re reraise. I would put him on a pretty tight range with many pocket pairs included, Why would u want to get 100bb in on a board u didnt even hit?

      I agree I don't think I would ever re raised his re raise pre flop. What did he have?

      Calling his 3bet there isn't bad, it's gonna be multiway with a hand that can make really strong hands and you have a decent postflop position as long as BB isn't an aggro fish.
      If you choose to 4bet, just jamming is an option, CO is probably gonna dump anything up to QQ+ and it prevents you from getting into these weird postflop spots.

      As played postflop, i think you have absolutely no fold equity so even c/c is gonna be better than shoving yourself. It's really sad but i think his range there is mostly high pocket pairs that are never going to fold, so saving yourself the 60bb by check/folding it down is probably a better idea.

      Hope it helps.
