I had no stats, but I tagged the player, because he already had limped before (in most cases, the tagged players are much more likely to be fish, than holding a monster). I think my push was ok, at least slightly +ev, but maybe not super profitable. What's your opinion? What do you think of my 3bet pre vs a (probably) weaker opponent? Thank you!

Fold preflop, imo. You can raise it up if he limps, but if he open-raised, I'm not playing this. He's not going to be as wide in MP as he is in CO, and he didn't limp which increases his strength as well. I'd need more of a read before I play this.
As played, I wouldn't shove the flop. At least not without a good backdoor draw to go with our OESD+overcards.
You're lucky you hit the lower part of his range and won the flip.

Just fold pre. QJs is close, but probably only 3-betting that vs CO. Flop don't bet under half-pot, especially with your specific hand. People are going to raise TPTK+ and make it expensive for you to draw. Or just spaz out with air, maybe peel a card off with AK. I prefer 55%.
3-bet shoving flop is bad because we have very bad equity vs his stackoff range, especially given the dry board texture. Most of the time our J/Q are not outs.
