      - 3bet preflop is a little too big? Would I go all in if either player 4bet me here? What sort of range calls a 3bet?

      - Cbet or not cbet? If he has AK I may push him off the hand with a cbet but if he has QQ a check behind gives me chance to catch up on the turn.

      - As played I check/fold after he calls flop?

      Stats are very usfull in estmating 3bet & 4bet ranges.
      It's really opponent dependent. Nits will only 4bet with QQ+ or ever KK+
      Loose fish can 4bet/shove with TT+,AJ+
      I don't like calling/shoving with AK against a 4bet in FR, but again I act according to my opponent.
      About 3bet calling range, again it's opponent dependent.

      I like c-betting here, you can push AK out of the hand, You might even get QQ to fold representing KK+

      Unless you improve it's C/F.

      Good Luck!
