Interesting protected pot situation with big draw

1/2 nine handed.
V1 (MP1, stack 300) is mid 20s WG, LAG, winning player that most people respect here
V2 (MP2, 29) is unknown MAWG
V3 (SB, 200) is YWG, usually a dealer, first time I've seen him playing.

Hero (200) is in BB with A Q. Seen as nitty by some regs. They probably haven't noticed yet but I've opened up my game a bit from when I first started to play at this casino a year ago. A bit more 3betting, bluffing than I used to.

V1 opens to 12. V2 calls. V3 calls.
Hero with AQdd in BB raises to $35.
V1, V2 (all-in for less at 29), V3 all call.

Main pot ~$110 locked now. Side pot $18
Flop: K T 6

V3 checks. Hero? I may normally cbet this but the bulk of the pot right now is protected by the V2 all-in.

Hero checks. V1 checks.

Turn: 3

V3 checks. Hero? Picked up NFD but the side pot is still small.

Hero checks expecting it to check through again.
V1 bets $30. V3 folds.

Hero? The main pot being protected, I assume V1 should have a made hand here, right? But now there's $48 in the side pot and I have a huge draw with possibly some fold equity given my image.

3 bet way bigger pre. You are asking for a four way pot OOP with your sizing, and it's almost going to never not be just that. I like going $70.

I would just x-c the turn. What value hands x flop, and x-r turn?

Pre I prefer a bigger 3b, at least 60-65.
As played on turn, this seems like a call with the combo draw odds.
The flop is an interesting street. As played I would check, but with the bigger 3b, I would often cbet depending on the number of players still in the hand.

Just call the turn. You’re getting direct odds to draw to the nuts, so why risk V1 jamming on you and putting you in a high-variance spot?

Re: Interesting protected pot situation with big draw

My thinking was that V1 would have bet a K on the flop and possibly even a 10, especially being a LAG. And I thought my AQ could possibly be ahead of the all-in guy, so I want V1 out of the way. So Hero shoved, figuring V1 would fold any marginal or drawing hand. V1 folded.

River: Ah. Hero takes both pots. V2 mucks without showing.

V1 said he folded QJ, would have rivered a straight to take both pots.

As for what V1 thought I had, I'm not sure but the guy next to me said he thought I had pocket Kings when I shoved.

No one here seems to suggest the shove so maybe my logic is flawed and I got lucky it worked.
