      I would c-bet the flop. If you are called, you know that you cannot continue. You are representing AK, KK or AA so c-bet.

      Since you are IP, you can raise just to $4,50.

      but maybe better is try to get at showdown cheaply, if you cbet flop you always get call for AK, AQ and other better hands and throw out 88,99,TT?

      You don't have to c-bet flop on a 3bet pot.

      There's a saying that goes: "Don't c-bet a 3bet pot, unless you're going broke on the turn." If you c-bet that flop, you're turning your hand into a bluff, so do it properly. You're definitely not getting value from weaker hands, but you might get many stronger hands to fold. You'll hardly ever get a fold on the flop though.

      I think villain's range is something like AQ+, 99+. AA and KK are possible but very unlikely. AQ is very unlikely and AK is kind of unlikely.

      Anyway, I would't c-bet here, cause you'll easily get a cheap showdown and might take the pot down against a weaker hand and you still go a few outs to improve. So take the free cards.
