      Maybe just calling Pre flop or on the flop is better.

      I'd just call preflop. It's full ring and he 4x'ed it, chances are he's a reg and he's not going to call too many 3bets out of position with worse hands. If he's a 4-bet or fold type of players, it sucks to get blown off AQs every time he chooses to continue with the hand.

      As played the reason it's gross is the same reason why we usually don't 3-bet preflop: villain's calling range might actually be a lot stronger than our AQs. I don't think he calls with stuff that flops draws or worse top pairs on that board too often preflop, and it's suicidal for him to donk into us on an A-high board to begin with if he doesn't have TP2K beat. So either decide he can somehow do that with worse hands and raise/call it off, or decide he's not doing that with worse often enough and call flop fold turn just in case he happens to have AQ as well or the occasional draw.

      Hope it helps.
