      Hey gao20005,

      I don't like your 3bet vs UTG open. Your default play should probably be to flat call QQ vs early position openers.

      When you get cold-4bet there is a pretty high chance you are behind the SB's range. He has not 3bet in 60 hands so in all likelihood he is not going to be cold 4betting hands like JJ or AQ. If SB was unknown here I don't mind your stackoff for 50bb; in this instance it's a lot closer, probably a fold.

      Yup, I recommend you flat AK too.

      There are exceptions though. Perhaps villain is really loose and has a low Ft3bet in which case you can still raise for value.

      If UTG looks like a standard TAG, you will not get called by worse very often when you 3bet. He can easily fold hands like JJ/AQ because 3bets vs UTG look extremely strong.
