      Reason for raising big on flop: value if he has a weaker ace and to get rid of him if he has a draw.
      I think raising bigger on the turn would've been a better idea but I don't think he's folding at this point anyway.

      Hello,

      Preflop I'm not a big fan of calling against UTG and I might 3bet here, but I wouldn't say it's pretty bad.

      As played, I'm definitely not raising the flop. I prefer calling and reevaluating the turn.

      As played on the flop, I'd just shove the turn.

      Best,
      Plamen

      I didn't really want to risk opponent 4-betting/shoving me preflop as I know he can be spewy, I never really like getting it in with AQ preflop.

      On the flop I know it's most likely he has something worse and I don't really like taking the passengers seat vs. this type of player.

      Stats: 67/61
      Cbet flop: 89 (10)
      3bet: 66.7

      Here's the end:

      Final Pot: $6.27
      Hero mucks Q:club: A:club:
      UTG shows 8:spade: 9:club: (a straight, Nine high)
      UTG wins $5.86
      (Rake: $0.41)

      Well it's likely to fold his weaker Ax most of the time and also have a player behind us.

      I think raising here is kind of overplaying.
