      Hi!

      if you call a 3bet, and hit TPTK it is almost the nuts, you should almost never fold it, especielly against this type of player.

      And anyway if you just see this flop it is draw heavy like hell and think about how wide his range:
      he can push it with FD-s AT+ with Flush equity, kombo draws, QK with FD, straight draw, straight draws with overs so many hand what a maniac play like this... so (AT+, K9+,9T, 89, 87, 97, 77-AA and so on)

      so i think after you just raise the flop you cant fold it, i dont think you made a mistake, maybe only the 3bet call preflop without position was weird, but you had a good read so you just followed it.

      nice hand sir, wp!

      If he is really 3-betting you too much then I think you can also consider 4-betting ATs, but if you´re not comfortable calling shove then call pf is also fine. You can play fast your tptk hand that board since if he has there any tx hand he is going to shove himself for value
