      Hi,


      You can raise AQ preflop against two limpers even out of position, you'll take it down preflop sometimes and get into a bigger pot with the likely best hand when someone calls.

      As played without any stats or reads on MP1 it's hard to say for sure, but against this line from most people in a limped pot you should probably lay down your TPTK to the turn shove, even with the nut redraw. It's not worth the price getting like 1.4:1, unless you know that this guy is just batshit insane and will do that with stuff like KsQx or even non-sense air hands.


      Hope it helps.
