      Hi Speed,

      The villain has barely 3-bet in this sample which tells me that his range is on the stronger side.

      So his line is representative of a hand like JJ-QQ, AQ and occasionally super strong hands (KK, AA, AK) so he keeps us in.

      So as played I would fold preflop as we have no real hope for our hand, no big draws, no big hands and we have reverse implied odds for our Ax.

      Postflop I'd just fold the flop or turn there as we are still versus a somewhat stronger range plus one note says he donks small with pair which is better than A high.

      His 3bet in BB is a lot bigger than in other positions. Of course this can be sample problem, but I believe that such min3bets are also often weak. So for given odds I call.

      I really don't believe that vs steal from BB he is 3beting only JJ+, AQ+ with such sizing.
