      Hero shows two pairs, aces and queens(As Qs).

      SB wins with three of a kind, kings(Kh Kc).
      Hero wins with two pairs, aces and queens(As Qs).

      Looking back. I feel I shouldn't have called when he reraised me. I wasn't using tracking software at the time but I had the impression he enters more hands then he should so I called on the flop. I think this is my biggest mistake here.

      As for my post flop raise, I'm not sure if it was too bad. I thought he had Ax or maybe even Kx.

      Hi,

      I think b/c pf is fine with AQs, since if you hit your tptk you can play for stacks against midstack and he has to be really tight 3-bettor for you to raise/fold AQs pf.
      Postflop I would also shove for value. He has there enough worse hands AJ, KQ that is going to call you down

      best regards,
