      Hi,

      Fold preflop until you know he folds enough to 3bets or to cbets.
      He is UTG and full stack so prolly reggy => his range crushes your AQo.

      The 3betting chart tells you to 3bet QQ+ against UTG.

      As played, his call 3bet range will be pretty strong => he wont fold much to a single cbet on this board.
      So its either cbet and shove turn but thats spewy against unknown.
      So I would check/fold here.

      Hello biogas,

      According to the SHC we indeed only 3bet QQ+ versus utg openraises so AQo in this case is a slamdunk fold

      Reason is what Tampa is pointing out: we are pretty much dominated with our AQ versus his stronger range

      As played I would cBet the Flop but getting in this spot is kinda messy

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      Gerv,

      What range do you expect him to call pre? I think its about TT+, AK.
      He wont fold JJ+ on this flop. AK will float and maybe even TT as well.

      So why do you cbet here if he prolly doesnt fold enough?
      If his call 3bet range is wider it will become ok, but it will need to be TT+, AQ+, KQ or something.

      Hi Gerv,
      its a bit confusing. Its a 9 handed table so UTG should not exist. HM gives villain UTG2 (it looks HM counts positions starting left of the BU) but according to pokerstragy basic articles on 9 handed table there is only UTG1 and UTG2. So my villain is actually MP1, thus I 3bet with AQ. But thanks for the input, need to process that.
