      CO: $2.71 (54.2 bb)
      BTN: $13.05 (261 bb)
      Hero (SB): $5.14 (102.8 bb)
      BB: $8.05 (161 bb)
      MP: $5.47 (109.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A Q
      MP folds, CO raises to $0.10, BTN folds, Hero raises to $0.40, BB calls $0.35, CO calls $0.30

      Flop: ($1.20) 7 2 Q (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.60, BB raises to $1.86, CO folds, [color=red]Hero?

      CO unknown
      BB 17 hands, 20/13.

      I don't know which action is best: call in the villain raise or ship it. My hand is pretty strong so i don't wanna scare the villain with a reraise. what line you take in this case?

      Notice his stack: 55bb or so. You have TPTK + nut flush draw in a 3bet pot against such a stack and he raises. It's a shove imo because he is commited but calling is also fine to make sure you get every piece of value from bluffs.
