      You definitely have a strong hand. You need him to basically stack off some weaker Qx and some draws to go all in. You don't want him to have just 22, QT and TT or around that range. I think it's OK to stack off as a default and make note if you see him with something like T2s, Q2o, etc. to expand his value range when he does this and reevaluate how many weaker hands you need. Also, if you see him shoving up with Q5o for example, you know he has many weaker Qx and it becomes a default stack off.

      It's a bit tougher to just stack off since it's 3way and SB is left to act, meaning UTG is more likely to have a strong hand when he plays like this imo.. idk how aggressive these midstacking fishy players are. You have to make notes on them and go from there.
