      Hello Alficor1,

      Preflop: Since we are on MP1 I would likely fold the hand because there are so many opponents behind us who can easily squeeze us out of the pot.

      As played
      Postflop: You have to decide either you are good enough with your hand on turn or not and if you Call turn then likely Calling=Shoving with 2nd Q is reasonable since he can still be playing like that KK+ and often even Call there with it, just unlucky that we were against AQ. Sometimes against such a nit you could even consider folding on turn, since he will not barrel 2nd barrel that often with a lot weaker hand.

      Best regards.
