      Fold preflop without reads, AQs is crap 3-way against a random unknown's 3-betting range. If you think villain is full of shit just use your preflop equity and shove on him, instead of playing a drawing hand passively for 1/5 of your stack preflop.

      As played once you flop TPTK if you were good enough preflop to call the 3-bet you're plenty good enough now to at least call the c-bet, so I would. If you don't want to, usually that means you shouldn't have called preflop to begin with.

      Hope it helps.
