      Here, with your AQ, you dont know where your opponent is, i had reraised preflop, and if he reraised, he was probably ahead.

      On turn, you can't call his check-raise shove, he is ahead 90% of the time, and pot odds aren't EV+ for you to call.

      Biggest problem on your play is on flop: here the vilain bets pot, you should just call and do some pot control, you don't have a monster.

      You can call it preflop but dont overplay your hand. Just call him down to take pot control line.

      But don't you think that he will cbet this flop 90% of the time? I believe I need to reraise flop in order to get an idea of how I stand, and then probably c/c or c/f turn?

      You get than idea of where you stand, but if you want to get value from weaker hands (AJ, AT etc. , maybe gutshot draws or just air) you could let him to bet. Unless he is a fish, he does not call your flop reraise with weaker hands. Board isnt draw heavy (3x , 5x hands are possible but unlikely), so you can just call him down.
      And on turn you should fold, checkraise there after calling your 3bet is very strong (at least trips).

      I would reraise preflop. On the turn without any read I guess it's a fold.

      I calldown for pot control. Raising flop is over-repping our hand. Well, Maybe.

      if you decided to call pf, I like raising on the flop, since you´re representing such a narrow range, that players mostly doesn´t believ you (at least in higher stakes)
      Just it is very hard to put you on set and he could call you down light with any Ax hand
      b/c turn is fine, since you decided to go all-in on the flop anyway :)
