      SB: $5.56 (111.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A A
      UTG+2 raises to $0.10, 2 folds, MP3 calls $0.10, CO folds, Hero raises to $0.45, 2 folds, UTG+2 calls $0.35, MP3 folds

      Flop: ($1.07) 5 T K (2 players)
      UTG+2 checks, Hero bets $0.70, UTG+2 calls $0.70

      Turn: ($2.47) 6 (2 players)
      UTG+2 checks, Hero bets $1.55, UTG+2 raises to $6.65, Hero ???

      Villian is a passive player, with 30/4/1.7 (VPIP/PFR/AF)

      With this raise on the turn, it may be a very strong hand, maybe 2pair+.

      I do not think he would raise with AK, or Flusdraw. Or am I wrong

      Is the fold the best option?

      against passive players fold is the best option. But if you want to b/f aces in 3-bet pot you have to ask if player can show up there with worse hands. Some players would consider AK being nuts and going with that, also some would bluffraise (mostly maniacs).

      If player has been straight forward and your image is not out of line (but rather tight), then you should be mostly behind, since his range are only sets or two pairs

      best regards,
