      Hi dethredic!

      Preflop:
      Folding AQo to 3-bet is good idea here. SB is the worst position at the table and is ussally quite strong when is 3-betting UTG (~mp2 at 6max).
      Given that we have BB in hand and 3-bet is bit smaller we may still call and hope for some powerhous on flop. A high flop gets little tricky as we may be behind to AK.

      As played:
      Flop:
      I prefer here checking behind and hoping for J on turn.
      When your stab got raised on flop - what do you expect you beat? You might have only 4 (unclear outs - J). He may be slow playing monster (given his strong re-raise here). AK, TT+ are in his range most likely. The min raise usually means strong.
      Folding here is only option to his raise.

      Turn:
      CB is ok. You do not have any fold equity here, betting does not make any sense.

      River:
      When str8 completed and only 0.2 of POT behind you have no option than call here and hope for best.

      Regards
