    Call and re-evaluate. 3-betting folds every hand that is worse than you.

    What's your image (or your stats)? Any history with this guy?

    my stats are 29/22.... i just got caught full pot bluffing a river in a button vs BB steal situation with 9 high on a KQ442 board by 55.I dont know much about villain other than he has not been that active. All i know is that the insta-pot seemed weak after i tanked for a bit and then called the flop.

    If you are image is 29/22, it's a fairly standard shove on the turn here. Good spot to stack off here by exploiting your image mercilessly.The reason why I generally do not put villain on a set is because MOST PLAYERS (even tight 12/7s) can't help themselves but smooth call with them on this fairly dry flop.... If he DOES have a set and knows you are ultra-laggy, he would just check-call the flop and in his mind, "give you more rope to hang yourself".You'll be shown a weaker hand here (JJ, TT, top pair any kicker, lots of other junk) often enough. He may though have AA/KK a far amount of time too. Weighing these together, you have a shove on the turn!Profit!

    Personally i think there are better places to get felted at 2/4nl than here.IMO, Unless you've seen him stack off weak or popping it up with draws, i'd be very hesitant about proceeding without more knowledge about the player. I think he is turning up with 98 or a set more often than not. If he is pushing me off with JJ or weaker, good on him.But then i'm pretty weak tight in spots like this, so i might be incorrect.

    With a caller behind you, there is no doubt with AA or KK he'd 3bet it preflop so you can't be afraid of that.Bluebear saying that more often than not you'll get paid off by 10-10 and J-J then when you'll run into a set or two pair is fairly accurate. His range of hands that beat you isn't enough to get you to fold...I go broke here =b

    With a caller behind you, there is no doubt with AA or KK he'd 3bet it preflop so you can't be afraid of that.Not necessarily, some people consistently slow-play them and nearly everybody at least consider doing it very occasionally to mix up their game (especially with position). You can't rule it out completely.
