      Hi Natrilis,

      Preflop: Since villain is somewhat unknown we can also just 4-bet/fold there to try and collect the dead money. Cold calling a 3-bet and playing OOP, even with AQs won't be fun and we have no idea about his range.

      Postflop: I won't say it's necessarily an easy fold but we do only beat a bluff or a poorly play AT/AJ. Without info it's hard to call but at the same time this is a 3-bet pot and we ck/called twice so villain may try to get us to fold pairs like TT-JJ that are part of our range. So if we called that far I'd probably call river too for 33% pot odds (but I'd fold or 4-bet pre).
