1/2 AQo facing jam after checkraise on dry flop

History:

-Hero is currently playing even more tag than usual as he has been card dead and folding pre for a while. Barrels almost any postflop that he does see and all the villains except V1 should know he has gotten away with bluffs at least a few times.

-V1 just sat down at the table about 5 mins ago, has folded pre a few times and that is it. early 30s asian dude

-V2/V3 are both tight passive players, very straightforward they will see a flop if they have a good hand and if they hit it they'll bet or call and if they don't they will fold. V3 is especially tight.

--
Effective stacks going into the hand in question:
Hero - 220
V1 - 200
V2 - 180
V3 - covers

Hero holds A Q in BB

Preflop: V3 limps in from EP, V1 raises to 15 from MP, V2 calls from BTN, Hero calls, V3 calls

(61) Flop: A 3 5

V3 checks, V1 cbets 35. V2 folds, Hero check raises to 80 intending to find a fold if V3 gets involved. V3 folds, V1 shoves. Hero?

Why are you raising flop?

As played cry calling or folding cant be bad vs unonwons at 12. I would lean fold

Re: 1/2 AQo facing jam after checkraise on dry flop

From a historical perspective, Doyle Brunson wrote that he lost the more money by calling with AQo than any other hand. Unless you think this player is going to stack to a raise with A9, this is an easy fold as played. The real mistake in the hand is calling pf. Against what at first indication is a tight player without any reads, I'm happy to fold AQo. I might 3 bet it against the right villains.

He wanted to find out where he was at. He got his answer.

Legitimate issue is pre-flop, 100% correct. So tough to make a lot of money with AQo oop vs unknowns.
