    With the small sample size, I would approximate he 3bets ~11% from the SB, maybe as low as 8% and as high as 15%. So something like AA-88,AKo-AJo,KQo,AKs-AJs,A5s-A2s,KQs-KJs,QJs,JTs.

    I do expect him to cbet a lot on this board, possibly his entire range. I think he would call your shove with overpairs+. He folds >70% of his range and your equity is at least 34% (vs QQ-AA, 88, A3), so this is clearly a profitable +EV shove.

    Now if he was only cbetting like 65% of the time, say overpairs +, bdfd, and any J,Q,K high, the shove would be marginal because you're barely getting the folds that you need.

    Still I believe it's likely he usually cbets close range on this board. But I think the EV of calling or raising it to something like 21-25 BB would be significantly higher. I believe he would fold the same hands he folds to shove if you just raise his cbet to like ~ 2.5x.

    I wonder whether you're shoving because you're uncomfortable playing flush draws when they miss on the turn ? I kind of used to do that...
