      3bet to 3$ preflop, you're giving him good odds to call for set value.

      And then with that 3bet size you have to play for stacks if you hit top pair with AQ so just cbet that flop.

      I also like c-betting and getting it all-in on the flop if he wants
      river call is difficult, I think you can fold if you want.
      he won´t shove there Ax for value, flushdraw got there and he could hold boat

      thanks guys

      the thinking behind it is that if he has anything but an A he folds and so i wanted to build a pot. of course it was a bad play as I allowed a flush to get there but all i wanted was a decent size flop and more importantly a controlled pot. and he massively overbets the river when it hits a second A, i couldnt let my trips go.

      im very afraid i might have a very important leak, left over from SSS
