Depends on the SPR, what kind of player he is, bet sizes, position, ranges etc

Let's say non 3-bet pot AF 2+ player (I will fold if he's passive) and standard raise x3

There's no standard solution. As I said before it depends on a lot of things. We have to consider his range & how well it connects with the board etc, whether we are ip or oop
whether we block his drawing/semi bluffing range or not, what are our best bluff catchers etc.

We can bluff catch by calling down & evaluate on the river. ex- call on busted draws, fold on completed draws
Or play it aggressive assuming he has more draws than completed hands. Or just simply fold some hands/

There's a theory called Baluga Theorem. Check it out as well.

It usually comes down to the opponent and their style of play.

Vs opponents who aren't too aggressive you can often fold in these spots (but not always)

Vs opponents who are very aggressive sometimes you just have to hold on and go for it. If you want to avoid this situation you can check back in these spots on turn to induce bluffs from your opponents missed hands and keep the pot smaller vs strong hands. This is always an option instead of continuing to bet.

As alucard said there are many factors you need to consider to make your play, and ultimately it is your job as the player to feel our your opponent, their style, their bet size, their timing, and their dynamic with you to figure out what the best choice is.

Practice makes perfect :)

It also depends on our hand. Having T8 on T83 board is way different from having AT or JJ. With T8 we are usually more than happy to get all the chips in on the flop, since we only lose to 5 combos of sets. With AT and JJ we lose to way more hands, so we probably just call and might end up folding later.
