      Hi.

      This looks like a weird spot.

      Preflop: MP2 is strongly repping QQ+ here and his range is super polarized between monsters (QQ+) and some bluffs like 76s. best course of action is to call and hope you are facing the air portion of his range.

      Flop: I think you have the best hand most of the time here so you should definitely raise.

      Turn: Maybe he has some AXs with two pairs, or 55/88, but I really don't see how you can fold here. Sometimes you'll run into spades and sometimes you will run into AQ/AJ.

      Isn't it more logical to assume a min 3bet is merged?

      I wasn't sure. It looked like A3 so often.

      Presumably if he likes AJ/AQ that much he'd just raise flop instead of flatting and donking turn. What do you think?

      Are there any hands he's played well with this line?
