      This guy 3bets 3.5 on 10k hands, so his range here is definitely a bit broader. I see myself check-shoving quite a few boards with my hand. He will definitely need to let go of anything that's not an ace (TT+ for sure, probably more, suited connectors). He might even be on an ace that he lets go here.

      The question is: is the shove still profitable seeing how I'm totally dead against AA? Is it too spewy? What if the board isn't paired?

      General comments on the play are of course welcome ;) . Is the shove too much for instance? Should I rather make a normal raise?

      I think c/c flop is fine play.
      If he has there TT-KK he would check back turn and likely fold to your river bet even if you don´t improve and if he bets again you can fold, since he likely has either better flushdraw or Ax himself
      on paired board you´re likely not going to c/r with AQ/AJ and it is really hard you to have 3x, so if you c/rai then he can easily call you down with his pp-s
      I think you can also take one option by leading to him on the flop10$ and when he is making small raise then shove
      but in general it is really hard you to rep anything else than draw and if he has made hand I doubt he is folding that

      And you don't think I can represent AK or even AQ with the history that he has been 3betting me quite frequently? Doesn't he often have a pocket pair that he will have to fold?

      I think he´d rather b/c than b/f on that board, since you generally have draws more often than AQ. He´d expect that you 4-bet AK and get all-in pf
