      This guy looks random and really bad.

      Preflop: I think his range for 3betting here is really wide. Easy 4bet for value with QQ. I think your raise size is fine.

      Flop: With AA and KK i think slowplaying is fine especially if we had A or K. With QQ JJ TT i think raising may be slightly better because this hand is definitely ahead of villain's range but is slightly more vulnerable.

      Turn: With so little money left behind I think you are better off just shipping over his bet rather than calling and putting yourself in an awkward situation after getting a bad card like A and being super committed into calling it off

      Nice hand.
