      I really wasn't sure about this hand. Villain 3bets 5%. I'm not expecting that many folds to my flop bet but i have a gut shot, and perhaps at least one overcard. I was also prepared to fire a second barrel to get him off queens and tens. His donk on the turn seemed starnge as it seemed like an odd line to take with AK or AA.

      So should i bet the flop and can i shove the turn?

      against 5% you´re crushes, so I like folding AQ pf.
      bet that board is ok, but I´d make it 6$, which should give you the same result
      Don´t shove turn, since you liklely have 4 outs to improve and he isn´t going to folding, likely a set or AK/AA
