      Hello DrDunne,

      Would have still 3bet a bit bigger like 50-55 cents but otherwise seems to be fine.

      Another option would be just to Call and play postflop which would be a standard play I'd advice to pick.

      Best Regards.

      I like to 3bet my weaker hands here (the ones I'm unsure if I'm ahead of his range with) like KTo or QJo. This way, I often get a fold vs his weak CO range or sometimes have an opportunity to steal it on the flop with a 1/2 size cbet on nice A high or K high boards that are dry.

      The reason you want to just call with a more powerful hand like AQs is because they will often cbet to you and be dominated (ie: A high or Q high flop). Would you rather win their 15c or win 35c + ? =)
