      I usually 3 bet with AQs, but since I had just been in some 3 bet action against him a few hands before I thought a call would be the best option.

      AQ is kind of raise or fold hand... against opp 36-33 (60) you absolutely have to 3 bet. Calling just lets him catch 2p / str draw with whatever crap he is raising with.

      3bet preflop even with given history. Sucks playing this hand oop and without initiative.
      You could even then thinking of shoving to a 4bet with this villain and the history :)

      Postflop the river is close, you just need to be ahead 1/4 cases here to be profitable. I'd probably call, but I don't think it's wrong to fold against this guy.
