      Yes , nh. He looks like a fish to me and TPTK is good enough for me on that board

      SB's raise size is quite ugly. Coupled with his stats i agree he doesn't seem very good.

      As CO also seems bad and very loose, i'd likely 3bet bigger to get more money into the pot preflop with the likely best hand against the CO fish, plus that way SB also gets worse odds to overcall with whatever he raised with. They won't mind the extra big blinds, if they want to play they are calling anyway.

      On the flop you're not likely to get outdrawn by anything on that board, you could get away with c-betting less if you were bluffing as these guys won't notice. Here you've got the nuts so betting bigger for value is fine, and because he's repping exactly Kx (lots of those) AA 44 66 (a few of those) or a random flush draw, most of which you're ahead of, you're never folding to his shove in a 3bet pot.

      blind vs blind bet/call there is fine
      He sometimes have draw, sometimes Kx, sometimes just pure A high shove
      If he has set, then you´re beat, but imo that is not majority of times, when you face shove in 3-bet pot
