      is it still correct to squeeze and shove when his 3bet is low?

      I don't think his 3bet is relevant here. The main stats I would look at are
      1) Opening range
      2) Fold vs 3bet %
      3) 4bet range%.

      I would typically squeeze and shove this hand, but vs certain tight player types I could go for squeeze/fold, or perhaps even just flat calling. I rarely use these 2 other options though.

      If he's overly tight (opens 12% or less) I might just flat AKo. And if he doesn't fold that much but has really tight 4bet range (1-1.5%) maybe I might fold cos we did 3bet vs his UTG open and we look really strong.
