      I would either push or fold pre flop. Calling is the worse option since you allow your opponent to fold pos flop when he doesn't hit (AK i.g.) and go broke with you when he has the best hand.

      Since you're in UTG I would easily fold this hand pre flop. People will 3bet you much tighter cause of your position so you're -EV most of the time. You need your opponent to 3bet you with at least TT+, AQ+ (I did the math quite fast so I can be wrong... :f_p: ) to be +EV with the push.
