      1)I´d likely would 3-bet AQs pf for value
      You don´t have to play your top pair on dry board aggressively although you might do that
      Just it is hard him to call you down with worse hands, so i think c/c calldown line all 3 streets are better, since then he can also try to bluff you out with your hand
      2) I would likely prefer folding pf, but if you cann then I would play for stacks by c/r flop and then shoving any turn card
      If he has me beat then fine, but he can easily calldown or make moves with worse Qx hands or draws
