      What hands would he play like that?

      Full Tilt Poker

      9 players

      Pre-flop: (9 players) Hero is CO with Q:diamond: K:spade:
      UTG calls, 4 folds, Hero calls, Button folds, SB calls, BB checks.

      Flop: Q:spade: 4:club: 3:spade: ($1, 4 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, [color:#cc0000]UTG bets $0.75[/color], [color:#cc0000]Hero raises to $2[/color], 2 folds, [color:#cc0000]UTG raises to $7.25[/color], Hero folds.
      Uncalled bets: $5.25 returned to UTG.

      My thoughts were only AA, KK, QQ, 33, 44. Couldn't think of any hands he'd play like this and would be behind me.

      AA-QQ mostly don´t limp.
      But some straight/flush combos would also play that way. (5s6s)
      I like your fold to 3-bet, but I´d probably just call flop, since you have showdown value and you don´t want to play for stacks at that point.
      And I like raising pf, since tag UTG limping range is probably:
      22-TT. and if he is lag, then all kind of suited hands and high cards.
      You have position and often you just can take the pot down with contibet, doesn´t matter if you hit or miss.
