      I did not cbet flop because I think his range contains many PPs.

      On turn he again does not show aggression, so I bet, I believe its more on the weaker side then and J helps for my range.

      flop - agree with your line but i think his range also consists of broadways which would not fold here but could fold on the turn when his equity drops

      turn - helps your range and you could bet here to fold out his broadways and small pairs. if he calls here i would also bet the river as a bluff to fold out smaller pairs.

      What about preflop coach? I don't think we want a hand like this in our 3b range tbh..

      And I also don't think any Khi or Qhi or Jhi will float on this flop oop. Ahi with bdfd might.

      3betting A9o is a little too wide but i dont think its a big mistake against someone who folds alot to 3bets and also gives up flops and turns.

      perhaps the calling range against an 18% open in CO should look something like

      Hand range with equity greater than 45.00 %:

      55+
      A8s+, KJs+
      ATo+, KQo

      and we 3bet hands that are slightly weaker like A9o (its acceptable) KJo KTs A7s.

      if you are uncomfortable calling this range then u can tighten it to

      Hand range with equity greater than 50.00 %:

      88+
      ATs+, KQs
      ATo+

      when leaves us 3bet bluffing A9o A9s KJs 22-77 as a bluff

      i dont think too many Qh or Kh would float too so i think betting is fine but i think these hands would also check turn and give up and they are more likely to give up turns compared to flop and we have A high thats some showdown value. with a hand like QJo though i prefer betting because showdown value is lower.
