      The flat call pre is fine, but 3betting is also fine here. Against an UTG raiser it's always close for me whether to 3bet or flat call. Calling his 3bet IP is fine, if you have a plan for the hand. The flop is ultra safe vs his 3betting range, which we can assume is value at this point due to small sample size. If we say, JJ+, AQs and AK, then our QQ has 59.7% equity against him. Since his aggression factor is high we can assume he will continue being aggressive.

      I think our best plan of action is to call him down, and be prepared to go broke to a river shove that isn't an A or a K. If his 3bet stat is actually reflective to his real 3betting range and we assume a wider range of 99+, AQs+, AQo+ and KQs we have a massive 71% equity vs this range. I think the majority of the time we're ahead and we should be prepared to go broke on the majority of rivers :)
