      ok his raising all sorts of trash so yes A4/K4 is possible so is 45 etc but i think that is a small part of his range so id be more inclined with this guy to put him on flush draw/overpair or air and get it all in.

      It's well possible that he's raising UTG & MP 4bb & CO & BU 3bb. It's what I'm doing usually at least. In that case ofc he'll be showing up with trashier hands if he raises 3bb because naturally his late position ranges are wider. You have to make sure you get a proper read on this because his raise size might be just related to his position & not his hands.

      Anyway, the hand.

      Pre-flop: you're oop so 3bet x3.5. In other words, make it $3.50 instead of $3.00.

      Flop: The guy is loose, his AF is high and it's a low card paired board. Sets are unlikely and 4x hands are just as unlikely. So... I don't think he'll often have a made hand here, this is usually a strong draw.
      This is a standard raise spot if he's playing 8 7 (flush draw + gutshot) or A K (flush draw + overcards). He might also just have a pocket pair... and most of those you beat here. So I'm shoving.

      just 1 thought i prefer to raise it preflop to 4x oop (vs BTN sometimes 4,5 x, vs UTG 3.5x)

      since you hold overpair in 3-bet pot and he can´t really represent much then I also like shove. he is making sometimes there plays, sometimes hold flushdraw which he might call or fold and unless he slowplayed pf QQ-AA I think you´re ahead most of the times
