      Hello Sikac,

      Well, why not just to Call when the guy donks/raises so many spots. Might be much easier to play against him postflop and in smaller pot while we also have the position.

      But otherwise I wouldn't really try much on the flop but rather just fold the hand.

      Best Regards.

      Since I learned from you that AQo doesnt stand good multiway action I always either 3 bet or fold except BB.

      Yeah, it's totally correct. But we also right now have the position and not that many opponents behind you. But of course it's not a huge mistake anyways to 3bet here and then fold to any further action. But as you see the problematic part with such opponents comes when they start donking such boards. :(
