      Depending on how much he 3bets I'd consider just folding preflop.
      A 17/12 probably has a very tight 3bettingrange, so there's not much reason for calling (btw he doesn't exploit us folding AQ at all, so we don't have to worry about it).

      As played I think it's a fold on the flop unless you think he's 3betting AJ preflop which is questionable given how tight he is.
      It's a very thin float in any case since we block 4 combinations of AK, so there are only 12AK, but 3 QQ, 6 KK and 3 AA - we have 50% foldequity on the turn at best. And this is assuming he cbets AK 100% of the time and c/folds it 100% of the time on the turn.

      Still, this shows once more why this is a fold preflop, his range is just too strong to do anything postflop.

      As played on the river - fold! This is clearly a valuebet and there's not a single worse hand in his range that he would valueshove like this.
