      i don't like this play. You know already preflop his stats so if you are gonna 3bet then you should at least bet the flop or the turn after he checks to you. You have position so use it. If he doesn't fold easily then just call preflop and get value if you hit your set

      3beting preflop with hand like yours is -EV if you dont plan on taking away pots from him postflop. And in my opinion this flop is good for making cbet once he has checked to you. If he raises you then it is an easy fold, but he wont be able to continue without good hand here.

      Well imo if you deside to 3-bet pf you really should c-bet the flop. Because you will only hit your set one out of seven and therefor have to steal the pot to make this play profitable.

      BUT, just call because then you got the impliedodds to play your hand, and you are IP and might steal the pot from him that way.

      Since you have BU and he is aggresive I don´t mind 3-bet pf, but on that board it is must c-bet. He would fold so many hands on his range that makes it very profitable.
