      Your lines have to make sense to your opponent, If you had A why didn't you bet on flop?. Also I don't know how many hands you have on villain and if it is a reg or not. Most fishes do not think further than their hands and against them repping is pointless

      Also if he calls your 3 bet on turn do you think you have much fold equity on turn? What is his range on turn? and what do you beat?

      Also why didn't you cbet the flop and reevaluate turn? possibly cbet flop / shove turn or cbet and give up if called would have been better lines

      Why aren't you cBetting the Flop?

      As you can see this is a horrible line to take to represent Ax because you just get called down by Pair of Tens here over and over again
