      If this was me I would have shoved after his re-raise pre flop.
      I'm thinking he has re-raised so he's got a pair or AK and will probably call an all in.
      If he has nothing and folds I just take that and move on.
      If you and get called with 33 then you just have to accept you were unlucky with him flopping a set.

      On the flop I would maybe want to induce some kind of idiotic bluff from KQ or some kind of awful call. Overbet shove the flop might look like a draw. Tiny bet on the flop might look like AK that doesn't want to do a real cbet so he might try to shove u or something. It doesn't really matter as long as you are betting and getting it in in a 4bet pot.

      I'd raise the flop smaller so that he's not tempted to fold with any pair and might possibly call/spazz with overcards as well, then jam any turn hoping he feels committed by then with whatever he has.

      Hope it helps.
