The reason I reraised is because I figured Villian:
1. Most likely didn't have a hand better than mine in a 3-handed situation
2. Probably thought my hand strength wasn't as good as it was in the situation
So I felt that my holding was best and didn't think that cold-calling his reraise preflop was optimal, because then we are seeing a flop out of position with a bloated pot and surrendering the control/aggression to our opponent.
