Hi beat,

Preflop flatting or 3betting is ok vs a button open with no reads, although we may do better by flatting and keeping his steals in, where a 3b just folds out so many worse hands that we dominate and isolates us against the stronger parts of his range.

I 3b this spot more with reads, such as:

-villain is opening button wide, and calls 3b's frequently (he'll continue with worse, dominated hands)

-villian is opening too liberally, abusing his button (I will 3b light a lot to punish this, so I need more value type hands in my 3b range for balance and AQ slips into this mold now).

-Villain is fishy and the BB is a strong player (I want to isolate and get the BB out... if it were the other way around and the BB were the fishy player, now we would rather flat and invite the BB in).

Post flop I think this is 1 and done personally, this turn card will not dissuade him from calling again with all his pairs that continued. If he's a habitual floater then c/c, if not then c/f to a reasonable bet (we don't have the read so c/f to a reasonable bet)
