with 48BB MP, its a cooler. You should have shoved preflop when has only 48BB.
Result is cooler. There is no way you get out of it. Its once of those times 20% wins, your 80% loses.
With the way it played, the MP is representing a higher pair or a FH/4 of a kind. It will be a tough fold after flop when he shoves.
Even if MP had 100BB, after flop its a cooler. No way you are getting out of it.

Just bad beat, for me you played it okay and it was just unlucky hand.

When your 3-betting this, you have to be prepared to get your stacks in almost always as the stack/pot ratio will be of roughly 2. Considering the villain is a fish and raise only premiums apparently, you are not crushing him when he doesn't limp open. I might 3-bet this too or call this oop and play poker on the flop with more room to manoeuvre, usually fish like this become aggressive only with a very good hand, keep that in mind. The raise tells me you're beat 99% of the time but you're committed because of the pot size as I said...

Once we cbet we are committed.
Most times we should win this so i dont see any issues.
Could shove pre and gamble
We could flat preflop if hes a tight opponent... short stacks once call that 3bet pre wont fold

I think given that MP appears to be very loose-passive pre-flop (on very small sample) when they open raise their range is very narrow; 99+, AQ+, AJs.
I think flatting pre-flop is better in this spot against this opponent because they are too often calling a 3bet which puts us in a tough spot post flop if an overcard hits.
The plan then would be to get to showdown cheaply on a flop board with over cards OR on a board with lower cards value bet against their missed AQ+ type hands. If on the flop you get raised I then think its easier to get away from and fold and you have committed fewer chips in the first instance.
On the other hand if they limped pre-flop then I would be 3 betting for value most of the time, even-though out of position.
