Hi, how would you play this spot? Villain - 29/12, UTG RFI 10%, 3bet 6%, 4bet 3%, FT3B OOP 30%

Preflop it's bit too loose...I should 3bet ATs+ by deafault, probably even tighter vs UTG with quite small FT3b.

Flop is better for our range as prelop 3bettor so I chose to cbet small with most of my range, maybe even whole range.

OTT - does it make sense to check back sometimes with showdown value + nuts FD? I guess it does and I may do that sometimes (20% of times let's say and vs players that don't fold to 2nd barell too often) so we can still have flushes once we check back on the turn. Generally I think we should still go for second barrel once FD turn came so we can balance our value range with some bluffs and we can make bigger pot in case we hit the flush. Shall we pick bigger sizing or is 1/2 OK? Maybe I should go for 2/3 so we can shove the river if flush comes? If we miss I will check back most likely as I don't think it's good to bluff with busted AX draw here and we still have some tiny showdown value. I would rather bluff with hands that don't have showdown value and don't block AX flush draws.

Turn reraise is pretty strange here especially when he chose to minraise, looks very strong - like JJ or 77 very often. I don't have exact reads tho so I chose to call given the pot odds and my equity.

OTR It's fold obviously as I can't imagine villain bluffin here + we have many better hands in our range - overpairs, flushes and we also block some of his possible bluffs if he has any.
