      I was not sure if I should call. His SB stat is high, but it might be coincidence on small sample.
      I usually call IP AQ, unless somebody is very nitty.

      Bet larger flop? It looks like he is surrendering. Is call ok? He could have often AK, and wants to protect. Off course, AA, QQ, but there are more combos of AK.

      Preflop is fine imo. AQ plays quite well as a call IP vs a reasonably aggressive 3bettor. :)

      On the flop I would bet a bit bigger but not much. Vs a shove I would snap it off most often. I have found people don't play flushes or sets like this often enough it's 90% of the time a draw with some showdown vlaue meaning your AQ is not ever way behind and is very very often reasonably ahead.
