      Why shove? You two overcards and that's about it. I think there are better spots to stick it in.
      I would just 3bet pre and then I shouldn't make any hard decisions postflop.
      Just my humble opinion.

      I'm never shoving that flop. 3bet pre, but I'm just giving up on that flop with your hand...

      3-bet/call it off preflop or just shove on him given his stack, you don't want to draw out of position with AQ, you'll miss too often.

      As played it almost has to be a value play when you shove, since CO will often call it off with pretty much anything he c-bet with even overcards so your fold equity should be pretty low. I don't really mind it you usually have overcards when behind and sometimes you're getting it in ahead, it's a profitable shove if he ever folds anything to you in that spot.

      Hope it helps.
