Question optimal strategy v loose fish (spec scenario)

Couple of parts to this.

Say you are playing NL cash game 6 seat ring online game in this scenario. One player hero is playing against is a somewhat aggro / loose fish. In scenarios where you are dealt solid but not nut hands such as AJ,AT, KQ, TT & maybe AQ, would it be more optimal to try & 3bet the aggro fish off most of his junk raises ( has a wide open range) & ( assuming he will fold most of his junk to the 3bet). Or would it be more optimal taking flops with higher % of time making the best hand, knowing the aggro fish will fire a few cbets into you with lesser hands? Obv you will miss some flops and fold but essentially its a slowplay I guess.

The other scenario is where the aggro fish will flat most 3bets with his wide junk range. Would the answer change? Wondering if there is any stats on this over large sample size.

You're going to need a lot more context to get a real answer. Suitedness, sizing, positions, stacks, rake structure, are there players behind you, do they call wide, do they 4bet a lot? etc etc.

Re: 3bet or flatcall?

If they flat wide instead of 4betting wide, use a linear 3bet range (top-down) pure value . If they 4b/fold a lot, then use a polarized range (hands that are happy to build a pot and hands that are happy to fold).

Re: optimal strategy v loose fish (spec scenario)

obviously other factors are involved here like what the players behind you are likey to do and how they play postflop, but to answer your question most directly, when he overfolds to the raise you'd bet him very polarized IP, calling most of the hands you listed (could still 3b some AQ/TT/AJs etc) and raising with like suited gappers/Axs/tiny pairs or whatever, and from the SB probably still play fairly linear and 3b-or-fold unless BB is awful. then in the scenario where he flats wide, you'd 3b him linear both OOP and IP, mostly 3betting the hands you listed, IP either calling or folding those suited gap type hands depending on whether anyone behind is likely to squeezze
