      Is 3bet ok here? It looks strong, and my hand is ok, 2 blockers, and he folds so often. I dont like to play it way, because fish enters for sure.

      I almost always 3bet AQ vs late position raises.

      1) This guy folds a lot to 3bets. That would make me want to call AQ instead.
      2) He open raises to 5BB. This makes me less inclined to call and more inclined to 3bet.

      Considering these 2 factors I think it's slightly better to 3bet.
