villain is like 28/20/7, so my thoughts hes raising AK to get value from other Ax worse(some players dont 4bet AK vs squeeze, A4s,44 and 55 which he could call vs 3bet because I 3bet a lot, really annoying to fold here, but what does he raise here that I beat? rarely anyone bluff raises in this spot.

re: Poker & $10 NLHE 6-max: Folded top pair on dry board.
I think you need to decide how many streets of value you can get and you want to get from a given hand vs. villainís range. I think the way it was played, getting 1 or 2 streets of value vs JJ, 10-10 etc would be more than enough. So you can exercise pot control by checking the flop and inducing bluffs.
I like the 3-bet pre-flop, although it is a little light. AJs is good not great hand. Winning pre-flop OOP is a good outcome.
When one 3-bets preflop one is required to bet pretty much any flop with an ace, IMHO. But 1/3 pot? It screams weak. After Villain bets, there is ~$10 in the pot and hero has $21, Why call? Fold or raise now. If you don't think a 2/3 pot size bet will get a fold, then Hero needs to fold now.
