Since it's a turbo and with a maniac on your right, you should be restealing from the blinds with a very wide range.
I wouldn't change anything postflop; the odds of a villain flopping a boat are less than 1%, and there's no way you can do anything here other than get it in on the flop. There are only three hands that beat you on the flop and he just happened to have one of them (AK, A6, 66).
Although we're told Villain has been raising often, it isn't safe to assume it'd be with ATC when blinds have shove/re-shove stacks as he should realize he'll be priced in (in most cases). I might assume (depending on what I figured their experience was, what adjustments they're making, etc. etc.) that a standard open-raise in this spot might be closer to & be top of their range as I'd think they'd be just open-jamming considering stack sizes of hero (& BB?). 53 remaining out of 580 field, it looks as though the bubble has been popped which is also going to influence my thoughts as to what BTN's range is here when they just min-raise (or make their standard open) here.
I wouldn't consider 3-betting small here with AA/KK (or any other hand either) unless I was playing against some non-thinking players. It is going to be so obvious & would be like playing your hand face up. (unless your opponent is thinking that you're thinking that he's really not thinking.... but then he knows you're thinking that he's thinking that you're thinking he's not thinking but is actually really thinking AND then you get him to fold while doing this with some random junk (very unlikely scenario in this spot, LoL).
I would think it'd be more likely to get action by just 3bai in a spot like this with AA/KK as I'd also assume this has likely been your play up to this spot in previous hands. (it's a Turbo, more than likely many shove & re-shove stacks).
In some instances we should be stealing with a wide range but only if we feel strongly that we have fold equity. With 10-11bb's we dont' typically have much fold equity when facing an open-raise (but of course 'it depends' ie. if it is someone like Abdi/naruto then there's a good possibility he would fold in this spot vs. many players).
OP, this is a clear & easy shove preflop. Even if villain is choosing to make a min-raise open here with only the top of his range & shoves the rest of his opening range it is still a shove (imo).
