Trips with a kicker problem?

Early in a $1.10 turbo zoom on Stars.

PokerStars - 30/60 Ante 7 NL FAST - Holdem - 9 players
Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

Hero (BTN): 66.6 BB
SB: 156.52 BB (VPIP: 0.00, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 4)
BB: 39.87 BB
UTG: 111.35 BB (VPIP: 33.33, PFR: 33.33, 3Bet Preflop: -, Hands: 3)
UTG+1: 42.17 BB (VPIP: 0.00, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 1)
MP: 127 BB (VPIP: 50.00, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 2)
MP+1: 73.27 BB
MP+2: 84.6 BB (VPIP: 25.00, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 4)
CO: 63.37 BB (VPIP: 0.00, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 2)

9 players post ante of 0.12 BB, SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

Pre Flop: (pot: 2.55 BB) Hero has A 7

UTG raises to 2.2 BB, fold, MP calls 2.2 BB, fold, fold, fold, Hero calls 2.2 BB, fold, BB calls 1.2 BB

Flop: (10.35 BB, 4 players) A A 8
BB checks, UTG bets 4.13 BB, MP calls 4.13 BB, Hero calls 4.13 BB, fold

Turn: (22.75 BB, 3 players) 3
UTG bets 9.1 BB, MP calls 9.1 BB, Hero ???

Is it just too obvious I'm up against a stronger Ace here? Anybody call to see the river?

I'd say with the sizing/stakes theres always a chance vil is butchering a big-med pocket pair. Still gotta be a fold though.

I think it's a pretty easy fold with 2 Vs still in the hand - I'm probably calling with just one V although not loving it even in this situation

Re: Trips with a kicker problem?

Honestly, I wouldn´t fold. I would play x/c. The chance of a better ace combo is significantly decreased due to the two aces on the flop and the one you hold. You block a better ace-combo. Villain could bet out with something like KK, QQ, JJ or even a worse ace. We are in a 1 Dollar tourney: most Villains are very bad at pre- and postflop play and bet when they shouldn´t.

I am brave - I call!

I think it's thin, but I'm x/c'ing down here with this sizing. I see a lot of pockets flat here and UTG could easily be continuing with a big pocket pair not believing there is an ace out there. I think if one of them jam the river I'm letting it go, but as long as it plays out like the turn I'm feeling good calling down.
