      you don´t have to get all-in in 3-bet pots with tptk
      1) I think I´d likely call turn and decide on the river if I want to call shove
      2) Likely I´d 3-bet flop and get all-in, although your way is also fine
      You can consider folding turn, since I doubt he is making potsize bet a lot of times with his draws
