Hey now, I don't often post in the hand analysis section of CardsChat, but I thought this one would be interesting to share. Mainly because I've never been involved in a pot with so many BBs spread across so many players, and because I feel like there's a lot that could be in play mathematically.
Was I right to call here? I feel like based on the pot odds it's a no brainer. I understand it is unnecessary to post the hand result so I won't.
Based on the fact that I'm holding top 2 pair, and out of the 8 Cards that can make 2 Pair up, 4 of them are known, the chances of them both being held by others in the hand are slim?
As for flush draws, even though my equity wouldn't be as stunning against four to a flush, at almost 3/1 Pot odds it's hard to see how I could be behind in that situation?
Thoughts on the hand? I feel like there's a lot I can learn here...

1) Fold preflop, it's not close. AQ is a dog to your opponent's 3-bet range, and cold calling here is a huge leak.
2) You hit the best possible hand you could hit on the flop next to a full house or trip queens. Shove it in, it's not close.
