      Hey P,

      I would not cbet that board since we have very little equity and Qxx is not good when our opponent calls a 3bet. It's the absolute worst high card on the board.

      As played the flop, I think you should consider check/calling the turn. If you cbet just about all your 3bet range on that flop, your AKo now is just about good enough to check/call while if you bet on the Ace scare card, you usually don't get value and get many folds from worse.
