      Results follow:

      Hero shows high card ace(A Q).
      BU shows a pair of threes(A 3).

      BU wins with a pair of threes(A 3).

      Villain stats in 89 hands :
      15(vpip)/11(pfr)/50(f 3bet)/38(steal)
      -(fcbet)/50(f 2nd barrel)/31(wtsd)/1.3(af)

      I decided to check/shove this hand because I don't think he will ever fold to a cbet, plus I probably have the best hand the majority of the time (38% steal and not so much fold) and if he's got some pocket pair, so be it but I still got my outs.
      Sorry for posting this hand with the results but he showed A3, so he actually called my 3bet with A3 and called with that pair an allin. How should I abuse him? (I've seen him at my tables several times) One thought is to raise more and the second is to check/shove each of my hands for value :-?

      You only have 89 hands on him so fold to 3bet is far from accurate hence you made a wrong assumption there

      Yet if you check/shove , I think it is an okay move here against most opponents.

      Against this opponent, he didn't believed you so just mix in some check/shoves with the nuts in here
