      I would like to hear some thoughts/comments on this spot. UTG1 is solid reg 8/5 70hands, but I know that his normal stats is smth like 12/10.

      What lines we possibly can apply in such spots? (if coaches can give some ideas with examples(taken different HERO images into consideration) it would be nice :)

      In this case I fold preflop but I think there are some space for different plays :) And also how our game changes if we have AKs?

      Thanks! :)

      Fold is fine, since likely his opening range UTG is very strong, I think smt like 5% and AQs isn´t really ahead that range

      Hold'em Simulation ?
      328,762,368 trials (Exhaustive)
      Hand Equity Wins Ties
      AQs 39.24% 117,245,568 23,492,448
      5% 60.76% 188,024,352 23,492,448

      But nevertheless I´d call, since you can flop very strong draws and put pressure on the player postflop and sometimes he is going to c/f smt like 568hh board where you can take pot down betting.
      Also since his UTG range is so tight you´re also protected against squeeze by worse hands

      Similar spot with AK I´d call and play postflop. if you 3-bet then you basically turn your hand into bluff and likely have to fold to 4b
