He seems more passive , because of a huge gap between VP and PFR. I think because of deep stacks his hand range is wide and raising OTT in a 3bet pot means a lot of strength . I think he wouldn't raise TT-JJ there, you showed a lot of strength and he isn't aggressive enough to bluff or turn TT-JJ into bluff. As for me it's very hard fold .

When V1 calls the original raise and then calls your pretty large 3Bet, his range is heavily weighted towards low-medium pocket pairs, say 22-JJ.

On the flop I think I'd CBet a bit bigger than you did, something like $1.40 as you are multiway and it is more likely that one of them (or even both) will call.

There is a theorem called the Beluga Theorem - if you are raised on the turn, re-evaluate the strength of your one-pair hand (the implication being you should usually fold). Check out Dave's Poker Theorems Lesson for more info

You've got a passive opponent who's range contains a lot of smallish pocket pairs and you've got a low flop. You've bet/raised at every opportunity, showing extreme strength, yet your opponent min raises, seemingly begging for a call and not wanting you to go away. I think he has a set 100% of the time here.
