      I usually flat 99 in that spot, granted we're ahead of BU's range for isolating the weak limper, but 99 are strong enough to play in that spot even out of position provided BU is not insanely aggressive. There is also a decent chance that CO will stick around if we don't 3bet and we can try to hit big on him. Also if BU calls the 3bet we're in a weird spot, we're never gonna know where we're at.

      As played unless BU is overly suspicious of your 3bet, his range probably looks like { AQ, KQs, 77+ }, probably skewed toward AQ/88-JJ. So we're mostly forced to c-bet there and try to check it down when called, unless we think villain would often bluff whiffed overcards once if we check the flop to him, in which case we can check/call the flop. And i said 'once' because if villain just blindly keeps barreling he might take us off the best hand, so it's probably a better idea to c-bet and take it down against very aggressive villains.

      Hope it helps.
