      I cbet to get him to fold smaller PP's like 88 and below. Although given the positions his range might be more broadway heavy.

      I think his range after he raises is polarized between SD's, GS's, FD's and som Jx type hands. I might be wrong since his WWSF = 33% = doesn't bluff, make moves too often.

      This spot and something like QQxs, TTxs gives me some trouble playing, because people are nonbelievers on paired flops, but on the other hand still getting decent Flop cbet succes + Turn cbet success. Of course T = bet if A, :spade: hits.

      Still have to be very careful on QQxs, JJxs, TTxs.

      I guess, If I hand AA here I'd still have to bet fold simply because there are multiple draws. On a rainbow flop I might check back Flop.

      Your play looks fine to me.. Your hand can barrel but cannot really check back to bluffcatch nor is it so weak to need huge folding equity when you bet half pot. I would be a bit less inclined to check IP than OOP with my medium value hands in a 3bet pot simply because IP I can control everything better, including my bets on later streets so I also agree with betting AA and such.
