      I usually call villians min-raises if I was the initial raiser. Flop: Looks like a conti-bet. Turn: makes the floplook even more like a conti bet and he has given up on the hand. River: maybe he is betting his Ahigh resulting in a chop pot?

      Hello. Hmm.. calling the preflop 3bet is quite marginal... I would likely fold. But in position, it can be ok... but you have to be very cautious because BB could easily have a better A. Calling the flop bet is ok. You could sometimes bet the turn after he checks and that may force him to fold... but in a 3bet pot, I don't think he'll be folding any pp or Kx hand here though. So you're probably better off just checking behind and hoping for a good river card. As played, why did you even call that river bet? Definite fold buddy... at best you're splitting the pot with A high... but losing a lot in the long run.

      Fold to his 3bet, you usually are either dominated by better ace or a dog to a PP.
      Checking the turn is fine to get a free look on the river. he isn't laying down a PP or Kx anyway.
      Fold river, you are spiting the pot in the best case scenario.

      How about raising the flop here? He has a nut flush draw and may catch an ace which could sometimes help.
