      I 3bet pre against CO there all day long.

      On the turn it's really weird. Call there is OK but b/f river is better than c/f.

      3bet seems fine, because minraise sucks and BB can easily call with marginal holding as he has cheap call against two opps.
      As played checking back is fine, but I would lead turn because I still expect him to cbet flop with any hand that hit, so ten to exclude AJ/A8 and most likely also A6. He may have enough worse holdings here, including FD, SD, worse Ax.
      So I'm getting in on turn if possible.
      As played Q sucks on river and he made overbet on turn already, but pot is not so big overall and I'm not ready to inflate it and play b/f or b/c, so I tend to just c/c reasonable bet if he decides to bluff here and he may still bet worse hands. Against such a overbet I would fold.

      I also prefer 3-bet pf and leading out myself on the turn and river
