      The fact that he is in the big blind can make his move a bit looser, do you think it is worth calling AQs here?

      I think it really depends on your own MP raise%, and on the reads you think villain has of you.

      You need about 43% BEQ here, so I think he's gotta be 3betting you quite loose for your call to be worth it. Even if he's betting 88+, AQ+ you are behind. He needs to be pushing some AJs and KQs for it to be worth it.

      I agree with this. If you are maniac on MP then you can call. Other meta/history can also entice to call.

      If you never faced this guy and/or are relatively tight (<10%) on MP then I muck but it also depends on your F3bet
