      villain is most likely reg, I had 14 hands on him and was like 14/14 and he was refilling his stack and had blocked tracking.
      I did 3bet to say hello and to get some info about him, and AQ is probably too strong too fold to a single open raise.
      With AQ here I think it can go two ways: he calls hands like QJs, KQo, 89s and I have value or he throws it away so 3bet is profitable right now, I dont expect unknown to 4bet bluff too much.
      On the flop I thought he will muck every broadways without FD, so I think cb is profitable even if he muck mostly worse hands.
      I planned to barrel only on K to get rid of 99-QQ, (if Q or A would turn out I probably would also barrel and hope he would not throw away those hands).
      But 3h came and I picked gutshot so I did bet hoping he'll muck at least 66% of his pocket pairs.
      Do you think its to spazzy? Making some unknown to muck his small overpair to double barrel in 3 bet pot?

      I would just check/fold here on the Flop. I think villain's range is pretty weighted towards pocket pairs, and we won't really pick up any great cards on the Turn to continue barreling. Vs a range of AQs/AK/77-QQ, I think we should just give up on the Flop. I would bet if I had the Ah or Qh in my hand though.
