      Definitely fine, AQs is too good to just flat call here, especially when there's plenty of players after you that might squeeze or raise or just call you and beat you post-flop.

      I'd fold to 3-bet here, too, unless I have reads that he is some sort of a maniac.

      Well MP3 is short/mid stack at 40bb.

      Once he shoves we only need 38% equity and versus a range of TT+,AQs+,AQo+ we have exactly 38%. If villain has been active then I wouldn't 3bet/fold.
