      The 3bet pre was probably a bit too aggressive.

      I fire a second barrel on the turn because an Ace is in my percieved range, and now that there are two aces out the chance of him having one becomes smaller.

      While the chances of villain having one is smaller, the same applies for you as well. Pairing cards are really terrible for firing double barrels as they generally improve the caller's range more than the better's range. So I would definitely give up here.
