    if you're getting into a pot from UTG, you don't want to limp. Either raise or fold and I'd be making the standard opening raise with AQ.

    Calling the 400 bet after the flop with top pair and 2nd kicker to me is something I'd do 100% of the time, in that situation.... although I'd have raised to 600 preflop.

    You just got extremely unlucky on it.

      Don't limp AQ preflop. Raise or fold from UTG. With a couple of sitters you're effectively playing 7-handed, so you should definitely be raising AQ. AQ offsuit is a hand whose strength lies in high cards and top pair with a great kicker. Open-limping encourages a multiway pot which is bad for that kind of hand. AQ is also not strong enough to trap. Just open to your standard raise. If you like to 3x, 3x, if you normally make it 2.5x, 2.5x is fine. Limping is not though.

      On the flop, I'd raise his bet...Of course, he's already all-in, so it's an obvious call. He goes runner runner to make some wacko straight. You got it in as a huge favorite in a spot where a pair of twos or even ace/king high is probably good enough to call. That's just unlucky. If there's a 3% chance you can lose...that's still more than zero. Losing this pot doesn't hurt you at all really. Don't sweat it.

          One piece of advice from my early poker days was to evaluate your options in this order:
          1 - Should I raise?
          2 - Should I fold?
          3 - Should I call?

            This is PSO Joe. Add "should I time out"

                The stuff I've read says raise/fold/call. That way you stay aggressive. Better to be too aggressive than too passive, because at least you can win when people fold. While you should be folding more often than raising, you should consider raising first.

                  Flip flopping #'s 1 and 2 doesn't impact aggression, it impacts looseness.
