      Preflop, you shouldn't reraise with AQo, i had called, standart-hand charts says to fold.
      On flop, you should't contibet as board is draw heavy, just take the check-behind to see a free card. If a King appears and he has a Queen, you're likely to take his stack.
      If a Queen appears, you can give up your hand, cause any King or 9 beats you.
      On his check/min-raise on flop, give up your hand, he has very likely a better hand.

      Pre-flop re-raise is fine. You're 4 handed so AQ is often the best hand here.
      C-bet on the flop is standard since you made a 3 bet pre-flop but you have to be able to fold against that min-raise there.

      This is one of the few boards i wouldn't c-bet, even in a 3bet pot. We do have an OESD to the nuts and overcards, but the more taggish CO is the worst it is for us to c-bet here even with this "draw".

      The reason is that when CO call our 3bet out of position he usually has strong hands, but not strong enough to 4bet. That means mostly medium pocket pairs, AJ-AQ and some big suited connectors like JTs-KQs. Everything in this range hits that board one way or another, and our draw is worthless when we get raised off it every single time.

      Even tho we're supposed to c-bet most of the time after 3betting to show that we don't just "give up" when we get called preflop, we don't have to do it every single time, and that would be a good time to choose not to do it, that textures is just bad for us imo.

      Hope it helps.
