      Against that player I'd shove
      He should 3-bet there wider than just KK/AA and because there is enough dead money in the pot I think shoving is better than calling or folding.

      I know I don't want to 4bet, have him call and then miss the flop, but isn't a shove way to big in this spot? Wont he interpret it as weakness? Isolate myself against better hands?

      if he folds there AK or QQ then that is exactly what you wants
      I doubt he´d call with worse hands, but here seems too good chance just to fold
      If he happens to have there KK/AA, then nothing to do, but you should really want worse/same hands to fold there.
