      I think you asked about pf.

      I think generally there shouldn´t be too much difference between calling or 3-betting that hand pf.
      3-bet is good:
      - to put pressure his wide opening range, so he has to either tighten up, 4-bet his bluffs and value hands or play 3-bet pot oop. If you get strong hand as AK, JJ+ you can expect him to play back more often, so you can likely stack his weaker range
      calling is good:
      - to keep in his very wide opening range. Although A5s really doesn´t dominate a lot of hands, he would likely barrel on Ax turns with his air, so you can win quite big pot if he likes to bluff. You also don´t get 3-bet/4-bet wars and can always make moves postflop.

      If it is your first 3-bet then don´t think there are any minuses if you 3-bet (only if you get called, you´re dominated by AQ/AJ, so you may not want to play for stacks if you hit your tp) and he would likely not 4-bet bluff you at the first time.

      Postflop seems standard. There can´t be any draws on the turn that he might barrel, but consider you hold trips and he can always go 3-barrel bluff I´d also call him down.
