      SB ($27.44)
      Hero (BB) ($25)
      UTG ($33.06)
      MP ($25)
      CO ($26.10)
      Button ($29.89)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A, 2
      2 folds, CO bets $0.75, 2 folds, Hero raises to $2.75, CO calls $2

      Flop: ($5.60) A, J, 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $3, CO raises to $7, Hero calls $4

      Turn: ($19.60) 6 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $16.35 (All-In), ...

      Villain is 25/20, 170 hands;
      Aggression 4,2 (flop 6; turn 6; river 1,5);
      Steal 50 (CO 45, BU 71, SB 22);
      Fold to 3bet 75, 4bet 8;
      wtsd 25, w$sd 17.

      In retrospective I like a bit bigger bet on the flop, like 3,5-4.

      Given that he folds a fair amount to 3-bets (although smallish sample) makes me think his range is on the stronger side.

      Given that and the nature of the board bet/fold is fine in my opinion. Bet/call and fold turn is fine if you believe villain is likely to give up his bluffs on the turn (and a lot of people do once you call the flop since your range becomes obvious as being strong).

      if you call flop, you can´t really fold on that turn card
      You can consider b/f flop, since players don´t make too many moves there, but if you 3-bet with A2s I think you likely have to play for stacks, since your image is then bad and they would make make moves sometimes on that board, so you can´t really get away once you flop your tp hand
