      Due to suited call preflop is ok, but you are right vs such pfr better to 3bet.
      I think you should donk a little more - 1,75 for example. Versus middle stack anyways we are committed.

      Preflop: would prefer a squeeze here especially if one of them ís a fish.

      Flop: Don't like leading here, I think this is overplay. When you get raised this is an easy fold vs most unless you are sure he raises every AX here. Go calculate your equity vs a typical raising range here and see how badly you are faring on this monotone flop.

      While being up against a midstack gives you better odds, I think you are crushed here a lot.
