$5 NLHE 6-max: TPGK in 4way 3bet pot
5NL 6-max zoom on PokerStars
. I have some stats on all villains but the sample sizes aren't massive. I also have a note on the BB villain: he's a passive fish who doesn't 3bet AKo and will float a flop Cbet with Ace high.

When MP decided to 3bet, I knew that my AQo could be well ahead of his range (since he had a 20% 3bet), plus I had position on him, so I didn't want to fold, but at the same time, I didn't want to cold 4bet and then have MP decide to 5bet shove and blow me off my hand, so I thought that calling was the best option. UTG had a 0% 3bet over 41 hands, so I was fairly confident that he wouldn't 4bet without KK+ and thus I didn't have to worry about getting blown off my hand from a bluff squeeze.
With so many callers, I knew there was a chance that people were set-mining, but on a 2-tone flop, I thought that any flush draw could stack off too. I contemplated between shoving the flop vs calling the flop and shoving all non-club turn cards, but eventually went with the former option (shoving the flop). I wasn't scared about MP's Cbet because he had a 67% Cbet and I figured that he could easily have a hand like AJ/AQ/flush draw. So I thought I'd get it in on the flop and hope that no one has AK, a set or Aces up.
What do you think about the way hero played this hand? Should I have folded preflop? Should I have flat-called the flop Cbet to invite others in?
