      MP: 135.25 BB
      CO: 287.35 BB
      BTN: 58.3 BB
      Hero (SB): 280.35 BB

      Hero posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has A:diamond: K:heart:

      fold, MP raises to 3.5 BB, fold, BTN calls 3.5 BB, Hero raises to 13 BB, fold, MP calls 9.5 BB, BTN calls 9.5 BB

      Hero bets 23 BB, MP raises to 109 BB, fold, Hero raises to 267.35 BB and is all-in, MP calls 13.25 BB

      Turn: (284.5 BB, 2 players) 8:spade:

      River: (284.5 BB, 2 players) K:diamond:

      MP shows A:spade: Q:club: (Flush, Ace High) (Pre 26%, Flop 46%, Turn 100%)
      Hero shows A:diamond: K:heart: (Three of a Kind, Kings) (Pre 74%, Flop 54%, Turn 0%)
      MP wins 270.3 BB
      Hero wins 0 BB

      MP 1.2k hands, 20/17, very aggro in 3bet pots. fold to 3bet 65%
      BU 14 hands 43/36

      Is call ok? He can off course have set, two pairs unlikely that he calls KJ, and nut fd. Siince he shows AQ, and we flip on flop, so is it better fold? couple of times I was 3betting and he ckeck shoves, but I never so his hand.

      Hi mla,

      Preflop: looks fine and can add 1-2 BB given our stack size with MP

      Postflop: If he is "very aggro" as you label him then we can't really bet/fold when he can have many NFDs that can shove here. Like AT/AQ have gutshot + potential FD so we can add those to his range. He can also take a similar line with some KQ type hands.
