      I know coming over the top on his 3bet was stupid. But would like some comments on what ive could've done differently.

      Hello. Apart from the over 3bet (just 3bet normally, 3xbet usually)... nothing wrong with the hand. Nice hand. It's the perfect hand to go broke with a set on the flop... you will usually get lots of action from AQ, AK, maybe AJ... of course the turn is ugly but hopefully you would have got it all in on the flop anyway.. .and it is rare that another A comes.

      You can 3bet a little bigger ~ 1.75 even though it wouldn't change the outcome.
      Nice hand.
