      Preflop: If you are playing against unknown it's better not to limp since you don't really know how often you can overplay him and also when a A lands on the board you will never know where you stand with your hand, if your kicker is enough and so on. But it ain't wrong to Call preflop.

      As played
      Flop: Small equity calculations is bellow and that's the reason I would likely just Call the flop also, since it's hard to go all-in there with only such equity.
      Turn: Folding here is totally fine since a lot hands not completed what beat you, like AK, AJ or even flush. So your play is fine.
