NL2 Zoom SH - AQo OOP

Villain: seems nitty
VPIP/PFR = 18/15
RFI (MP) = 22 (4/18)
Fto3b PF = 100 (4/4)

FCB = not enough data

PREFLOP: Between flatting and and 3b'ing. Standard is to flat. Since villain is nittier and will fold often to 3b's I decided to flat.

After reviewing the hand I think 3b'ing might be better:

I would imagine villain calls something like (bracketed numbers are weightings in %):
QQ-66,AQo,AQs-ATs,KQs-KTs,QJs-QTs,JTs,T9s,98s,87s,76s,[75]AKo,AKs[/75],[33]AJo,KQo,A9s-A2s[/33],[25]AA-KK,KJo,QJo,K9s,Q9s,J9s[/25]

- I've capped at QQ because I imagine villain would 4b for value mostly with KK+ (which is why I have weighted AA/KK 25%, onlong with some speculative hands I don't expect him to call preflop too often.
- AK i've weighter because I think villain 4b's some % of the time (maybe not as much as 25% though)

Against this range I have approx 50%, therefore I guess this should be a 3b/fold line preflop as I would imagine villain is rarely bluff 4b'ing me here.

As played...

FLOP: when villain c-bets I assumed villain can be c-betting with a lot of air hands and I figured my A-high might be good frequently here. I feel like like donking rarely gets worse hands to call and better hands to fold therefore I felt like x/c'ing and x/folding are the only lines that make sense here and since I feel villain can be bluffing frequently I decided to call and re-evaluate the turn. The plan was to x/fold future streets to further aggression as I felt that if villain checks Turn I can bluff some rivers or potentially check it down or x/c on some rivers and win.

TURN: Again on this turn I didn't feel that donking made sense as I didn't think many better hands would fold and I may not even need to turn my hand into a bluff as think that I may still have a decent amount of SDV. Although, I guess there is some value in betting purely for a mixture of thin value and protection (i.e just to deny villain from realising their equity and also they could fold AK/AQ for example). Instead I planned to check/fold to continued aggression. However, when villains checks behind I now imagined villains range would comprise more of no pair, high card hands.

RIVER: Here I really could'nt decide between checking and betting, but at the time given my line in the hand I didn't think a bet would get through very often. At the time I felt like x/c would be the best line depending on sizing.

    Why do you have such assumption ?
    If so, what your plan to win the hand then ?

    Well at the time my intention was to check/call the flop and possibly turn my hand into a bluff on future streets.

    Also, do you think 3b’ing is better preflop. I think my issues stem from there.

    I don't think picking up the pot uncontested preflop with AQo is a bad thing.

    I like the call on the flop. I think this is a dry board where you cannot have many draws, so you need to add some other hands into your bluffing range. AQo could be a candidate, although I agree it has decent SD value. If you think his cbet is polarised: top pair+ or air, I don't think bluffing with AQo is good, because you beat almost everything that he would fold
