      vilain is 18/14 ft3b:3/7 AF:2.2

      he prolly beth his air on the turn so i think its either a small pair or A high

      i think he can bet river with some weak-ish ace like ATs/AJ or smthg cause he probably realizes he has no SD equity here

      or fold?

      Preflop: Don't get why you are 3betting here. I think MP seems to be on the tighter side. We can't really 3bet for value, and we don't want to turn AQ into a bluff. Just call here and play a pot in position.

      Flop: Betting Flop is acceptable. Board is low, and we have 2 overcards and backdoor flush draw with the Q of hearts.

      River: If we think his preflop range is mostly AQ/AK/pocket pairs, I don't think you can call here. Your plan after checking flop should have been to give up.

      Calling here only makes sense if he can show up with KQ/AJ/some worse unpaired hands.

      BTW if he doesn't show up with KQ/AJ/worse unpaired hands after calling your 3bet preflop, then you shouldn't even have 3betted AQ in the first place.
