      VPIP: 20, PFR: 14, 3B: 3, AF: 3.9, Hands: 783

      I saw xyr donk very strangely on turn, and I was aware of the possibility of a QQ (maybe KK but not really).
      But with just 3 combos that really bother me, and the obvious slowplay spot for xem on turn, making the donk quite nonsensical, I just called.
      I was almost expecting a split with another AA lol

      Hey,

      You played it very well imo. The only thing I would do different is the flop bet size. I would go for around half pot and shove the turn. That board is perceived to hit you very often so you don't need to bet that big plus stacks are leveraged. That said, his range should be quite inelastic anyway, this is more of a consideration for all your range given how often you will bluff here for a better price.

      Sorry I'm not sure I got what you meant here.

      I meant his action will not be affected by your bet sizing most likely because his range will only have good enough hands to continue vs any bet and complete air that always folds. :) That means you can choose whatever sizing works best for your range, completely disregarding his.
