      Not sure im qualified enough but my opinion is that u can 3bet here. First because by not 3betting u invite the other players to join the pot as well and might end up not being in position with AQ in a multiway pot. Also cause the even if its utg villain is kinda lose and by 3betting u will get more info on his hand and might even take it right there. I might be totaly wrong but thats what I think =D

      I think this is more of an ugly spot preflop than you would think.

      3betting against UTG here would isolate yourself against a dominating range usually, so it's read dependent - does he fold a lot to 3bets? If he doesn't, I guess it would be the better choice.

      Calling MP in SH with AQ obviously isn't optimal either, because you will face a lot of squeezes and you will have to play against 1 or 2 players OOP if there are more calls. It all depends on the table texture in this specific case I guess.

      As played, I think it's close whether to raise the river. He could have AK/AJ/AT, but it's doubtful he will call with the flush that hit, so I think a call-down is sensible because we have too much fold equity on the river.

      Nh imo.

      I think both 3-bet or flatting is fine pf
      Postflop is standard
      You can raise flop and play for stacks, but also taking passive line is ok
