      Known players:

      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.85 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with T:heart: , T:spade:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, 2 folds, SB raises to $1.10, BB folds, Hero calls $0.70.

      Flop: ($2.30) 8:heart: , 4:spade: , 3:spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.55, SB raises to $4.10, Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $5.40

      I thought there was a very slim chance for him to have a set and narrowed his range to something like JJ+ AK. His 3-bet before the flop looked very much as he was willing to continue playing the hand.

      You will lose a lot of money by calling the 3b cause you don't have the implied odds ( you need 15*0.7=10.5$ but you have only 9.5$)

      Standard fold preflop imo.

      The math on these spots is usually is a lot more complicated then trying to get 15:1 odds, because against aggressive players you don't need to flop a set every time to be ahead of their c-betting range, notably they'll c-bet whiffed AK at you a whole bunch. If you're uncomfortable playing that postflop it's okay to fold until you feel better about it, otherwise I'd say calling preflop then calling a c-bet of non-broadway-heavy flops is fine, tho it's usually a fold once people fire the turn even if you have an overpair, they'll have a better one too often.

      As played when he checks flip a coin really, he could be giving up and yet he could be check/raising. Depending on how much you value hand-protection compared to bluff-inducing you can either check it back regardless of the risk of an overcard hitting or valuebet to protect against whiffed overcards. When you do bet it's a fold to the 3-bet indeed, you usually won't see 24/21 players make that committing check/raise unless they have at least something like the nut flushdraw, most often than not two overcards with the flushdraw coupled with QQ+.

      Hope it helps.
