      If i recall it right, i had played some hands with this guy in the last couple of hands and i noticed, that he isn't the very weak one. He was not letting off his hands on dry boards etc. Also, his PFR didn't changed much considering his position. The 25% was the lowest and that was in EP, MP. So when the board comes dry i think, that a check/raise is a great way to get the maximum fold equity. When he calls i still saw it as a stubborn way of not giving up. Also i considered that he could be a thinking and observative player. With what you call openraises pre and show huge agg post? Sets! Course, the Q is quite scary and knowing me, i'd shut down if my T bet gets called/raised.

      generally it is fine, just you have to realize that you´re not really reping there anything besides sets. So either leading out or maybe c/c flop to take pot away on the river when turn goes c/c may be better plan.
      If he is going to b/c flop, he may sometimes float you but very often he has there overpair that he isn´t really going to fold at any point and might easily shove turn
      Ofcourse he may also have there 88 and would fold to yor turn play, so when Q comes turn bet is fine
      Also with AJ it is fine to 3-bet pf for value and then put him a lot of aggression postflop
