      first hand with the villain, really couldn't put him on a hand. Looking back on it i think i should of called. Turns out after 75 hands he played 50/44 with 3bet of 25%...

      Since this is the first hand, we could consider him as an unknown.
      Against unknown I don't like calling AQo against MP1 raise. I'd just 3bet as a bluff since we have blockers and hope the take the pot down.

      Check/calling the flop is fine.

      On the turn the card doesn't really change much so calling is fine.

      I prefer folding the river here. I don't think he'd bet a worse hand here and I think that most of the time we are beat, and also we have a player behind, who might end up having a good hand.
