      Not sure here, unless you think he's pure bluffing i don't really see a point in not 3betting the flop out of position.

      If he has spades he can check it back on a blank turn and get two cards for the price of a minraise. If he's minraising a top pair in the first place i don't think he'll get scared by a 3bet (if he is he would have likely shut down on the turn anyway) and we don't want to lose the action on a scary turn. If he has a set we're doomed no matter what. If he's pure bluffing then yes it's good to give him another chance at firing into you, but he might just jam over a 3bet anyway or simply give it up, as well as bluff you off later on by representing spades.

      As played provided you still believe he can (semi-)bluff or valuebet a top pair when you check to him check/shoving is fine, otherwise you might want to try and force his hand by donking the turn kinda weak yourself to prevent a check back or induce a shove.

      Hope it helps.
