      No history with villian, seemed like a decent TAG after about 60 hands.

      I had gone a bit crazy last orbit with 3beting before the flop without showing a hand.

      The board didnt seem to have hit him so i decided to call the cbet and re-evaluate on the turn.

      Can i really avoid stacking off here and if so, when / how do i figure im beat? I guess the big mistake is the turn since i cant fold after that.

      If that second ace hadnt come i would obviously fold the river if we were deeper but after rethinking the hand, it shouldnt change my decision, All im beating is AQ and a bluff.

      with just overcards I think you can also fold flop, since if he has there any draw or pair he would very likely barrel turn
      Calling down turn and river are fine. You can also shove consider there are two flushdraws and he would b/c with worse Ax hands and draws.
      as played: you can´t fold trips, since he would very likely shove AQ, sometimes you see bluffs or missed draws
