      Hey Winner,

      I think preflop you can also consider calling. Your hand plays OK multiway even from SB imo. I don't think 3betting is -EV but I favour calling.

      Postflop seems fine. They will have a pocket pair very often and they won't fold A high all the time either so trying to bluff them off such a range with little folding equity is not a great idea, esp when you don't have more equity yourself.
