I always find myself in this situation. Many callers in the pot, not sure if i should call or re-raise pre flop. did i make the right play by re-rasing on the flop?

Well dang, you posted the results. I was gonna say fold preflop, you have a raise & a call in front of you and have 4 players behind you still, AQo shrinks a lot in value here.

Agree, fold preflop. If you really want to play it you can raise preflop, but you're facing an utg raise, so i'd be tempted to just chuck it.

As played... the flop play is weak, by both the guy who bet, and yourself. Your raise was tiny, i can't belive it actually took the pot here. You did a raise of 90 into a pot of 600, which should of been very inviting odds for everyone else involved.

so considering i made the call, what would have been a sufficient re-raise?

By raising it to 180 you are giving UTG and MP2 odds to call with ATC, if you're going to raise this, make it atleast 340.

Agree with the bigger flop raise. As is, raising just 90 says "I have an ace but I'm not sure if it's good." And, as others have mentioned, any semi-decent draw was getting odds to call.

As said by others above, raise bigger (3x is standard, but of course depends on pot size and bet size) to price out draws.
