      I would fold PF since AT can be tricky OOP.

      If BU was known to be open-raising light and you had not yet played back then you could 3-bet and proceed with extreme caution if called. You would also need to know if BU is capable of folding his marginal PF holdings.

      Nice re-steal on the flop though. Did his bet-size inspire this raise?

      Hi rubysilesia!

      Preflop: raise or fold. By calling you are out of position with a marginal hand and without initiative. By raising you are getting the initiative at least and maybe you can take down the pot right away. But in general I recommend folding here because AT is a horrible hand to play oop in a raised pot.
      As played I would have folded on the flop because he can easily have hit the flop and try to suck you in the pot with this small bet.

      Good luck at the tables!
