      Great spot to 3b, as he opens so wide. Sample size is not great, but I assume he`s calling pretty light.

      But what about calling? As it looks like, he`s rarely c-betting and goes to showdown a lot. I think, calling would be better with suited hands.

      I think it`s profitable to cbet, he will have to fold a lot of his range. But my bet-size is too small, .55 - .6 would be OK.

      I think 3-bet is a little more profitable with AT, since it would put him more difficult spots- he then would not steal that often and would likely call with more marginal hands pre-flop. Even with ATs I think 3-bet is fine- you can call maybe some suited connectors, since these hands flop very well and you can very big pot against overpairs.

      Postflop: 0.56$ would give you a little more fold equity, but if you are considering double barrel (especially on spades and K) then I would prefer your bet size. If he has air he would very likely fold also to 0.47$ bet size and he may also call once with 99/TT even if you bet 0.56$

      best regards,
