      Hello nuxia,

      Nothing much you can do there, I am also going broke here. He can still have a lot weaker aces.

      Best regards.

      Howdy,

      Given the fact it's a 3bet pot I don't expect him to have baby Aces here, so I'd usually check back turn unless his 3bet calling range is wider than usual.
      Overall it's kinda close I think as he may still have AQ and when the second Jack came it made AJ less possible. After checking turn I'd call reasonable river bet because he may be encouraged to bet worse then.

      As played you have to call his shove given the odds.

      Good luck!
