      Is this more call or squeeze? Utg is 21/13 guy and CO 30/8, Utg+1 is very tight 6/0 guy over 30 hands.

      Hi,

      given your reads and the fact you´re BU I would likely 3-bet, just to fold out UTG and then take pot down with c-bet. If one of the shoves then it is easy fold. if you just call then even on Axx boards you may be dominated by AK, so I would rather take pot down pre-flop. With AQs there should be more merit to call and try to hit good flop. Also I would be more likely call if I was at BB.

      best regards,
