      If no reading, it is too aggressive overplay ?

      Without any reads these kind of spots are tough.

      I think the pre-flop 3-bet IP is good. I think either shoving or folding to his 4-bet is going to be better though.

      Once you call and hit TPTK, I think you have to stack off.

      Hello newsat,

      Preflop: You may also just Call his raise, you don't have to always 3bet, with plan to 3bet him we also have to consider going broke, therefore more likely just shove as you decided to raise. :) Also doesn't make sense to 3bet/fold, rather then just Call and play postflop.

      As played
      Flop: What else do we want to hit when we are Calling preflop? Likely faced AA? I'd take a note on him that he plays his AA like that.

      Best regards.
