      MP: $50.75 (101.5 bb)
      CO: $22 (44 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $50 (100 bb)
      SB: $50 (100 bb)
      BB: $50 (100 bb)
      UTG: $57.20 (114.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A K
      UTG calls $0.50, MP raises to $1.25, CO calls $1.25, Hero raises to $5.50, 3 folds, MP raises to $11, CO folds, Hero raises to $50 and is all-in, MP calls $39

      Flop: ($102.50) 3 T 7 (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      Turn: ($102.50) 8 (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($102.50) 9 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Final Board: 3 T 7 8 9
      MP showed Q A and lost (-$50 net)
      Hero showed A K and won $100 ($50 net)

      I don't read much into his preflop size, I assume it is a misclick.

      Is it standard for him to go allin in this spot with AQo vs my BTN 3 betting range? In which conditions would his play be the best one, when do you expand your 4bet/call AI range to AQo in these positions ?

      His play is spewy imo. It would make sense for him to play like this when you have a crazy 3bet/5bet dynamic meaning he expects you to do this with hands like AQ yourself, with some pairs like 88 as well which you usually don't. Otherwise, he should not call the shove since he is not commited and doesn't get good odds vs a typical shoving range here. He was probably just tilted.
