    Is it fine to call his raise in preflop? I am not sure about the c-bet and definetly not sure about the turn shove. It seems to be too early in the tournament to take such risks but how to lose less in that situation?

    Re: AQs against raise

    With the backdoor spades draw and two overs I’d bet/fold the flop and check back the turn if he flatted the flop bet. At that point you can re-evaluate the river (and you can definitely strongly consider a fold with AQ unimproved at that point if he leads).

    A BB 3b pre vs a CO open is still a wide enough range that your hand has a lot of equity on that flop.

    Don’t like the turn shove at all. You’re only getting called by hands that beat you or an unlikely KQ (or maybe the occasional AcTc). You’re basically letting him play perfect.

    Re: AQs against raise

    A few questions:

    Is 4bb your standard raise size from the CO? Getting 3bet from a 4x raise means their range is likely pretty narrow. You have to call there

    On the turn, who's calling there that you beat? Who's folding that beats you? AK, KK, QQ (you block), JJ, TT, 98 are all ahead, most of a standard 3bet range, ragged aces you are folding out but they have no outs to beat you.

    What's the reason behind you checking the turn if he calls your bet on the flop?

    Because in a vacuum his 3b range has you crushed on a JT6Q board. The Q on the turn gives you showdown value but there's very little you're ahead of on the turn that would check/call a flop bet after he 3b pre. There's no reason to be scared about giving a free card to the few hands you're actually still ahead of (KQ/AJ/88/99 or the very unlikely AcXc that isn't specifically AcKc since a large portion of those AcXc hands may not be floating the flop).
