      I think you may have went wrong 3 betting pre flop to an early raise with a marginal hand. You have position. Flat pre flop and take it from there. Ul be way ahead/ way behind on that flop. You can minimise your losses playing small ball against bigger hands and get more value from weaker hands. That's how I'd play it anyway

      Hello Swimm,

      Preflop: Well, why do you 3bet in first place? Whenever he is calling an Ace then most likely it will be better Ace and therefore you will just be in trouble postflop.

      As played
      Postflop: Well, most likely I wouldn't 2nd barrel there while he even Calls on flop while being OOP and on Axx board. He can easily even have a better Ace. Rather also take pot control and then reevaluate it on the river.

      Best Regards.
