      Your preflop call is a little questionable - you're not really getting odds to outflop his better Ax in his range and often on Axx flop you are behind. If you had AJs at least you have a bit better playability. Without reads I fold as a default - if he is a fish then there will be much better spots.

      As played, I might go for a ch/rai on this flop since he often bet it - unless he has JJ/QQ in which case he'll just fold anyway. When you donk you get too good odds to fold TPGK so I just go broke vs him.

      Hope it helps.

      I completely disagree with the hand judges decisions.
      Preflop it might be a fold because of the playability but you definitely have the odds.
      On the flop I would never check/raise against the pfr because it would isolate against a better range. I would probably play check/call and evaluate the turn. There is also another player in the hand which would make me more inclined to call the flop if he calls - as the combos for the 3bettor for AQ+ are diminished and I definitely assume I am ahead of the other players range.

      The donk on the flop is also a viable option, but to a raise though you have to fold as you are always behind. He wouldn't be bluffing that often here and when he raises with one player behind it's AK+, possibly even AQ.

      Best regards.
