      Hi Farma,

      It is a spot where we can squeeze as a bluff so you can call it standard.

      As a side note UTG appears to be a weaker/fishy player (stack size, stats so far) so we have to be careful what we 3-bet here and for what reasons (for example AJ may prove to be a value 3-bet versus him if he is a calling station).

      With the info we have the squeeze is a bluff.

      What I meant with the side note is that UTG appears fishy so it may prove down the road that 3-bet bluffing is not good versus him and thus a hand like AJo (with info) may become a 3-bet for value.

      Bit confused :P . We could 3B for value right? Calling seems not great here, do you agree with that?

      I think its kind of a bluff against CO (dont think he folds AQ though) but it could be a value squeeze vs the fish. Aj is kind of an in between hand here but i dont think its strong enough to call so i either sqz or fold.
