      Hey BigAl123456,

      Call preflop is fine. 3bet bluffing is also an option.

      Flop - You have to call at least one bet on dry board with top pair.

      Turn - Probably a good spot to at least consider a fold. Call is ok but really marginal. Usually villain doesn't barrel light with worse. He usually has a better Ace. Sometimes he may barrel draws but I wouldn't assume he is doing so without reads. His bet size doesn't suggest he has a nutted hand or anything though.

      River - Smallish value bet works best here even though your hand is strong in the absolute sense. At best villain has a weak Ace. Other times busted draw or better hand played tricky. Usually he isn't that strong so I think your sizing is fine.
