      Doesn't make sense to bet the flop, u are betting only for thin value. Any K, even AJ+ has u crushed.
      I would turn this into a bluff, to make the opponent wary of making a bet, ultimatlely I would want a cheap showdown. So I would take a long time to make a flop check. This is scary as you could represent AA, KK, AK, and pondering whether to slowplay or play it fast.
      Take yr time to make a call, if opp bets flop. Check/call again on turn.
      Whether to CRAI on the river is opponent dependent...in this case u just do not have enough hands on him.

      I personally wouldn´t really 3-bet UTG open with ATs, but if you think you can´t play that hand profitable just calling I guess 3-bet pf is fine
      If you get called you´re likely behind every time, so maybe c/c flop, c/c turn and then c/f river is better play, although b/f flop is also fine
      You have some showdown value against QQ-TT so you can try to check it down
