      Reasons why I called his 3B OOP:
      We are deep (well more or less)
      his 3B is very small
      He is very aggressive (so I will get paid off nicely if I hit)
      Are these reasons enough to call 3B OOP?

      You can profitably play a pp for set value vs a full sized 3-bet - in this case 7-8$, if villains 3-betting range is tight - 4-5% 3-bet - because you will have much better implied odds.

      With a smaller 3-bet it is even more profitable.

      Nice hand.

      yeah, very standard spot to call 3-bet
      Don´t like your flop raise. You´re never bluffing there and although he is likely not folding overpairs he is likely also shoving there smt like 77
      I´d prefer making it 21$ on the flop and then give him more option to shove that "bluffraise" with wider range
