      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has A:spade: A:heart:

      fold, MP raises to 2 BB, fold, Hero raises to 8 BB, fold, fold, MP calls 6 BB

      Flop: (17.5 BB, 2 players) 2:spade: 6:spade: 7:diamond:
      MP checks, Hero bets 11 BB, MP raises to 36 BB, Hero calls 25 BB

      Turn: (89.5 BB, 2 players) 9:club:
      MP bets 67.7 BB and is all-in, Hero calls 67.7 BB

      River: (224.9 BB, 2 players) J:diamond:

      Is call on the flop/turn good? Is 3bet size on preflop good?
      There is no much sense in play, to be passive on the preflop and aggressive on the postflop, I think it's nuts or pure bluff. I thought that there is no much sets that would call me preflop.

      I disagree that he cannot have sets here, but I'm obviously never folding my AA in a 3bet pot. Sometimes he'll have JJ/QQ/KK type of hands, as well as K:sQ.

      With the A, I think calling here is fine. We are unafraid of any turn card so we can just push the Turn ourselves if he does check to us.
