10's+, AK, and possibly AQ come along for the ride I think pre=flop. His stats were pretty loose, but were over a very small sample amount. And I cant base all my plays and moves off of stats.
I mean the way he played this hand it looks like 10's or JJ. I cant see anything else. But again, everyone doesnt play the same so he could have almost anything at this spot.
Still way too much credit, unless you know something more about this opponent that his stats aren't telling us.
His opening range seems to be: 22+,A9s+,KTs+,QTs+,87s,AJo+,KQo (that's ~11%). This is a bit off given that bad players don't actually think in terms of which hands are best, they tend to raise when they see something they like. Some players like A2 more than they do 87s. But it's a decent benchmark.
A guy this loose doesn't fold much of this when you 3-bet him that small. And on the contrary to what you may think, he doesn't fold much of it even if you make the raise larger. He's loose; calling is what he likes to do. If you want to read something into his larger-than-normal raise, then that's one thing, but I really prefer having seen a showdown first to get an idea of what he's doing raising big before drawing any major conclusions about it.
