      I'd just check it, and reevaluate on the turn. This flop probably hit his UTG betting range pretty hard.
      With AK he has a straight, with TT-QQ he has a set. The only hand which we beat is KK here, so it's hard to bet for value.
      You can't bluff here, he's not going to fold sets or straight :D
      So, you have to ask: what do you want to accomplish with this bet?

      As played
      After the raise, I'd definately fold. It's clear we are beaten.

      Hello faronel,

      Hardly hits his calling range preflop on such a board. How many worse hands do you see paying you here? While he is also kind of tight with PFR. Check it behind and reevaluate the further action on turn. Especially being even so deep, I don't really see any reason to go broke.

      Best Regards.
