      With AA/KK, he's 3-betting you in SH most of the time.

      Looking here at an AQ, AT, KQ sort of hand and that's worrying. In the best case you have about 40% to win (if he has Qx, Tx and x isn't A).. so it's a clear fold here

      Flop is bet/fold.
      Unknown would not shove here with underpair, doubt that he´d do that with draw or Tx. So that leaves Qx or better hands.
      Against unknown you´ll take that pot down often enough since player would mostly fold all the hands that are worse than tp or oesd.

      You could also check there, but as you're the aggresor.. you're losing some fold equity (not to mention information) by checking behind.. you bet.. and if you get raised you're done (unless you have history with the villain and he knows you c-bet a lot).

      Hero cannot check the flop since it will be obvious that hero is holding AK and villain would bet on the turn if the turn is not T, K or A and would win flop directly (if, however, villain is reraised, he would realized that he was trapped).

      Hero cannot check the flop if he is preflop agressor in 3-bet pot (if hero had initiative) against one opponent.
