I doubt AQ with 2.3x starting stack wouldn't re-raise preflop, but there are times that it happens. Also, I can't see AQ potting the turn. that is the safest board ever for the flopped nut straight and there'd be no reason to bet at it oop. It seems to me that most of the time you're seeing AJ/AT, KQ, QJ, etc. basically anything with a pair and a straight draw.I'd say that KQ is probably the most likely. I'll call this most every time.

Terrible situation. Hero loses to AQ and Q9 and ties with 79. The latter 2 hands are likely SB hands. And AQ is too. Re-raising from SB with AQ is not necessarily a good play with a drawing hand OOP.

Because the board is so dangerous, I would have checked the river behind and not bet to re-open the betting.

Why would he re-raise so much? Unless he has the AQ, it is not a good thing to do. With four obvious str8 cards, I think Hero is beat more often than not. The pot-odds are about 1:1. So to call profitably, we must be confident that more than half the time we don't face a better str8 but a set or 2 pairs. I have a hard time justifying the odds.

I would lean towards folding. But to be sure, not an easy fold. The mistake in my view was the river value-bet on such dangerous board. In most cases I am faced with difficult decisions, I can later re-trace it back to a previous mistake made in the hand.

You don't have the turn "nutzz" AQ has you drawing dead to running spades.

If he raised any less, I'd say you have to call, but man he's really asking for a fold. I don't see why he'd think he can bluff you given the strength you showed on the turn and the fact that the river is a total blank. There's no hand that our straight beats that makes much sense. I think the most likely is 88, but that's a big stretch (bad turn and river play on his part). I honestly think he played 97, Q9, or AQ very coyly, so I think a fold is in order. If he raised to $10 on the river, I'd probably call.
