      His PFR is sooo low I wouldn't 3bet AQ preflop here. Just call and play it postflop because when you 3bet he usually has too many hands better than yours that call, not any worse.

      Do you have his fold vs 3bet stat and raise from CO? That will help decide even better whether to 3bet preflop or not.

      As played preflop, I would just go into check/call mode from the flop. You are usually way ahead/way behind because he is tight preflop. If you are behind, you have 0-3 outs and if you are ahead he has 2-3 outs. If you were very often way ahead you can indeed barrel off but you are not. He still has AK in his range and doesn't call AJ preflop imo so it makes it hard for you to vbet.
