      I'll try tu evaluate.. I'll see how my desision is close to veriz. :)
      preflop: I would fold AQ after his 3bet if he is not doing it often.
      flop: I dont like calling his cbet because second pair is not good enaugh.
      turn: after his check I would b/f.
      river:I would give up also on the river.

      Hello DarkBlade282,

      Preflop: Don't really like the Call here whilst you don't even know against whom you playing. His 3bet size is also towards bigger side than normal. Fold it.

      As played
      Postflop: Not really good idea to Call the flop cause you don't have that much beat unless he has really wide 3betting range, which means rather fold it there. Otherwise not much to comment, we ain't getting value from a lot worse.

      Best Regards.
