This is a spot that comes up often enough that I think it could use some discussion. I've altered the hand slightly, but that shouldnt be a big deal

w a hand that is a bit stronger, like AQ and maybe KQ it seems like this is a spot where we should just be raising for value, but in this spot, where we aren't really getting called by worse, aside from draws, does anyone like a raise?
flatting here makes the hand pretty hard to play, we basically c/f whenever a bad turn hits, which will be fairly often (any flush card and some straight cards). at the same time, we probably cant raise and get it in vs someones flop 3 betting range
what do we think is the worst hand we can raise for value in this spot?
I realize it depends on villains, their opening ranges, SB flatting ranges etc..... but I'm looking to get a bit of discussing going
