      Fold to the 3bet. His preflop 3bet should already tell you he has maybe JJ+, AQ+. I say raising his cbet is ok but his shove is really strong (KK+ AQ) so folding is the best choice.

      Buhhy is right about the preflop play, at first i thought you 3 bet him but its the other way. That usually means hes hit something nice.

      His weak flop bet usually means hes got something. I would probably just fold considering your hand is marginal. I would fold and wait for a better time to commit.

      Fold preflop unless he's been doing that a lot or you have some kind of read on him making you think he's weak.

      On the flop he's not continuing to a raise with a worse hand unless you have history of check/raising him with air in that spot, so i'd just call the flop and see what happens on the turn. If he's barreling the turn a lot you can shove on him at that point, otherwise i think you're better off folding the turn UI.

      Hope it helps.
