      Preflop - raise or fold. Cold calling leaves you 3 clean outs. AQo is not a speculative calling hand, its a big trouble hand. You need to be sure where you stand - best ace or not? MP2 is loose at 49-27. Very easy 3-bet here, especially in position.

      Flop - hit your 3-outer, as played.

      Turn - as played, still protecting.

      River - villain has represented two diamonds since the flop. Not much you can do here but fold.

      You cant check call or donk the river because you are IP :)

      Preflop: I would prefer to 3bet here, you are often dominating his range, also you have position over him.
      Postflop: OK.

      Best regards,
