      Preflop 3betting is fine but I'd make it at least 3x here.

      What's the purpose of the cbet here on the flop? I think, that the A hits the cold-callers range here pretty well and I prefer checking back here.
      Also, I don't really like your sizing. I think, that in 3bet pots, we should be looking forward to make smaller bets due to the smaller SPR.

      Yeah, as I said I wasn't sure what I was doing in this hand. Looking back now I see my mistakes. The cbet on the flop is just awful as is the bad call.

      Still a lot of learning to do here :D

      Thank you :)
