      Hero wins 194.5 BB

      He 3bets vs EP 15%, the same guy from my previous post with 66.
      I would call also OOP this hand. No need to raise flop, to protect from draws, and maybe induce bluff shove? On turn, it looks like he has KK+, but maybe also AK, so I call because I think it is pointless to call AQ and hit TPTK and then fold turn.

      Call IP is fine and AQ is definitely way better than 66 to call OOP too. Postflop you played it well, but knowing his range has many high cards you can also raise for value against all the flushdraws, straight draws and of course, weaker Qx in his range. The better hands are not that many to weigh the equity in his favour imo so a small raise (because it's 3bet pot, stacks are leveraged easily postflop) is possible but not necessary.

      After you just call flop, bet/calling the turn is good. He will do that with most combo draws, sometimes with better hands as well ofc but you get too great odds to fold.
