      I think 3-bet pf is fine. If you were both 3-bet/4-bet happy then calling should be also fine.

      You likely have to bet/call on the turn with your equity. Problem on the river is that I doubt you´re shoving there KK/AA or AQ, so he can herocall you quite often if he feels like you´re bluffing, so instead of betting 31$ I would likely bet 25$ that seems more like valuebet although on that card you can also give up or bet really small to 10$ to just fold his Ax draws

      best regards,
