      I think 3betting the Flop may be an option with the top set vs someone who raises 55/66 and stacks off, or even overplays AsX. We will never have less than 33% equity vs any hand and we crush AsX and lower sets. But I think calling as a default option seems fine to me.

      As played, we got lucky that we dodged the spades and straight draws, so easy value bet. How large should we bet? He either somehow hit the Q or J with a hand like QsAh or JsKc. So I think I would just bet 1.20 and expect to get looked up by these hands most of the time. A smaller bet doesn't make any sense in my opinion, he either has a big pair after this line or he doesn't
