      It's just a 3bet. People don't only 3bet KK+. He might thing and overpair like QQ might be good. Maybe JJ or TT too. The range I would put you on is TT+, AQ+, because it's such a good situation to 3bet. The rest of the hand is kinda standard imo.

      It wasn't profitable to setmine for him pre ofc, but if he's fish who knows what is he thinking? Overall I think it's fine to go broke here, because after cbetting you don't have much choice left.

      it is easy bet/shove, since he has there worse hands than sets and he may easily just min-raise with Jx or some other pp thinking he beats AK
