      According to the SHC you don't reraise AQ, you were just lucky that you hit such board. But in other view you played correctly if you didn't stick to the SHC. Lets see judges advice.

      Sorry, I thought you were playing nl10 and it looked like a 3bet for me. I mean, when there's a big mix of nl10 and nl20 hands on this board I just get confused sometimes.

      So the raise is ok, so is the call. You were not even minraised so it's obvoius to call, and there's still this minraising guy who gives you even better pot odds to call.

      Flop shove is a must with a pot like that. You were lucky hitting such a powerfull hand on the flop :) .

      Sooo, nice hand :) . Sorry once more for this bitter commentary :) .
