      No specific reads except that villain 3b me with AA previously to 11bb and then shoved his whole 120bb stack over my 4b. (i.e. We could 4b but I think he's not going broke pre for 120bb ever with AQ)

      On flop, is it a mistake to commit to our hand? If we commit, is passive ch/call down best to keep in the bluffs? On the river, we're not beating much other than bluffs but I decided that since board is pretty scary comptetent villain could bet 3 streets here expecting me to fold AK, JJ, KK by the river

      I would very often b/c AK ip especially when they 3-bet my UTg open, but oop I would prefer 4-bet and get it all-in
      Although they dot really 3-bet AQ and call shove, I widen my 4-bet value range and can also add quite a lot of Ax bluffs against aggressive opponents. So they don´t really 3-bet me that much, but rather flat my open raises, which suits me more.
      Postflop: don´t think players are making there 2 or 3 barrel bluffs, so imo best to play your hand is c/r flop for value and call shove or if you c/c flop then c/rai turn. As played: calldown is fine, you´re hand is too strong to fold his river shove especially when he is likely shoving for value also AK
