      I tend to call flop raise. When you 3bet and he shoves I think we are not in the best shape as there are not many hands that can handle 3bet unless he's playing all kind of draws this way or hands like TP no kicker. So it is really player dependent as many players just flat their draws, hope to hit and start betting and getting aggro when they hit, but some (more creative) are semi-bluffing more often and may raise their draws and take initiative. But those guys usually don't make it as minbet (because it is donky and they are too cool for that), but make it solid to really get rid of your random Jx or other stuff that they are still behind. And if you still decide to 3bet - make it bigger.

      As played there is nothing much to do, but bet turn and river bet is too smallish to think about folding.

      Good luck!
