      Fold preflop?
      I decided to call cause his raise was so small and I had position on him.
      Then it's kinda way ahead/way behind - either he has a stronger ace and I have 3 outs or he has a big pocket and he has max 2 outs. Or is it? If I'm calling turn he ends up with less than potsize left on the river and we're playing for stacks most likely, which I don't want in here.

      no, i agree with you his raise is so small there's no way you should fold here + you have position. with such a small raise is he trying to keep you in with K's or something or he may just be having a cheap go with any 2, who knows. i think if he has AK AQ he is raising more than 30 cents.

      i also think if he actually has the ace he will check one of those streets. i wouldn't blame you for going broke here but i can understand your hesitation.

      at the end of the day i dont know if i can fold trip aces haha.

      callin a small 3 bet ip is fine
      as you said its a way ahead way behind situation and if you call turn you are comited on the river
      if you consider his 3 beting range aj + tt + and some total air and you consider he fires the turn just with aj+ then its a muck
      otherwise call turn + river
