      I think betting the turn is optimal here. You need to protect on the double flush draw board.

      Also, overcalling the river raise is probably not great either.

      Do you not consider a squeeze pre?

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Preflop: Rather squeeze your hand here than Call it. We don't really want to play AQo in multiway pot being OOP.

      As played
      Postflop: Bet the turn yourself for protection and even free showdown. And as played the river is a standard fold, not much you beat there.

      Best Regards.
