Default AQ against unknown 25NL

MP just recently joined the table and is unknown as mentioned. I feel like I played this horrble. How would you play this hand? and given this play would you call or fold the turn all-in?



Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (6 handed) Full-Tilt Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com (Format: FlopTurnRiver)

BB ($10.10)
UTG ($28.25)
MP ($26.10)
Hero ($29.70)
Button ($9.65)
SB ($24.15)

Preflop: Hero is CO with Q, A.
1 fold, MP raises to $0.85, Hero calls $0.85, Button calls $0.85, 1 fold, BB calls $0.60.

Flop: ($3.50) Q, 4, J (4 players)
BB checks, MP bets $2.75, Hero raises to $7.75, Button folds, BB folds, MP raises to $28 (All-In), Hero ?

I hate these kind of spots, this is either a set, a fd (esp. AJ) or maybe qj.

Against an unknown id fold.

Preflop is fine i think , I dont mind just calling against unknowns instead of 3betting.

I'd prefer a raise preflop.

Now I'd fold.

3 bet PF. All those hands like AQ, AJ, AT and stuff are great but seriously these are exactly the kind of flops you hit the majority of the time, you want to either take it down PF or play the flop in a 3 bet pot....I was going to explain why but I'm running low on battery on my laptop.

Flop I would fold without a read. This guy could be playing a flush draw agressively or have some 2 pair or set. You don't want to stack off without more info here.

Calling preflop is pretty standarm imo.

The flop is nasty. I don't mind how you played it. you could just call and re-evaluate the turn.

fold it, gather information about your opponent and pick a better spot, the game is poker, not 'cards'.

Clould you explain why? there are 2 players behind who could be drawing and getting great odds if I don't raise.

Also you who advocate 3-beting PF: what would you do in this spot if he'd called and checked to us on the flop?
