      Action on turn is kinda tough. Sure you picked up 9 more outs but he isn't going to be betting AT unless he feels you're likely to call off a stack with a naked flushdraw or gutshot.

      As played I'm more likely to c/raise the flop as it would representing such a wide range (any type of draw, sets, two pairs, top pairs, etc) which could make villian easily spaz/shove a worse Ax thinking you're on a flushdraw.

      Anyway, NH.

      This should be a fold pre-flop. You raised from UTG and villain is 3betting you. His range is gonna be super tight. Probably something like [JJ+, AK]. AQ is really bad against that range. Apart from that, we're gonna be playing OOP and that's just gonna make us lose even more money =/

      I'd just fold preflop by the way not knowing the guy, drawing with AQs out of position for 15% of our stack sucks when we get squeezed by an unknown after opening from early position.

      I'm fine with the way you played it postflop. Our equity on the turn against a value + some bluffs range is close enough that we can call getting 2.5:1 if you don't know the guy, he might show up with a worse Ax or spades/hearts, maybe some complete airballs tho i wouldn't count on it.

      If you check/jam the flop in theory you might get called by a worse Ax if he puts you on a draw, but that's assuming 1/ he's thinking enough to put you on something 2/ he squeezed a worse Ax hand to begin with. That's a stretch at nl10. I'd rather take the line you took and eventually valuebet the river against worse made hands if he checks back the turn.

      Hope it helps.
