      I had the read that MP3 cant lay down TP so I was pretty sure he has AJ/AQ here. BB is fish but I was afraid he can have A3 A4 A7 AT. I decided to call. Is raise an option?

      Since MP3 didn't raise the river you're probably ahead of him. BU could also do that with any A and given that you're getting almost 3:1 on a call i think you can call here.

      Raising would be probably be overplayed since BU could also have you beat, he isn't very aggressive and yet he checked the flop suckbet'd the turn and potted the river. If he is bluffing he won't call a raise, if he has a worse made hand he has to be somewhat afraid of MP3 too if you reopen the action, if he has us beat we don't want to raise. I'd be happy to just call closing the action, see a showdown and save myself 40bb the times where he "slowplayed" a flopped set.

      Hope it helps.
