Hi Drazz0612!

Preflop, I could either call or 3-bet the initial bet, but I'm absolutely folding to the multiple shoves, as I'm going to have to play a 4-way pot with an unmade hand that is almost always way behind here.

Against these ranges, AQs will win only about 3 in every 10 times. Since I'm expecting to lose about 70% of the time, I need to fold.
