      Ill just go ahead and list the things I did wrong.

      1- Played AQo in bad position
      2- Call a re raise- Should of folded
      3- Bet the flop- Should of check folded
      4- Bet the river- Should of Check folded

      I would raise more pre flop, especially UTG. Raise 4x the big blind in that spot.

      The fact that an UTG player raises you, often indicates a strong hand (big pair or AK), which both have you beat on the flop. Flop isn't too bad for a conti bet I think, but after his call you should've given up and c/f the river, especially with all draws completing on turn and river (flush, some kind of straight)

      I think fold pf is the best you can do, since you´re very often dominated
      leading flop is fine, since he should fold there AK and worse hands and likely you can´t get AQ to showdown is you c/c flop
      I would c/f turn and river since once you get called likely he´d call again river
