      I wouldn't be calling preflop with this hand against an MP3 standard raise. If you think he will raise light from there, 3bet, or fold, but you don't have the implieds for a call, IMO.

      You aren't going to get better than this flop, so I would not stuff about with the minraise, raise it to potsize. You want to go now while you are probably best (unless he is holding AA), so build it up here.

      Turn is a worry. Now, AK, AA and KK have you beat, and with his c/r, you have to suspect that he is playing one of those hands. Without reads that he can play AQ or AJ like this, or bluff with worse, this seems a clear fold to me.

      I´d also fold pf. A7s is bad hand to play if you hit A or 7.
      Turn: I believe that your two pair is probably not good, but finding it fold is difficult, since he might c/rai with draw.
