      Preflop: Hero is CO with A A
      UTG raises to $1.50, MP folds, Hero raises to $4.50, 3 folds, UTG calls $3

      Flop: ($9.75) Q 8 9 (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero bets $6.18, UTG raises to $15, Hero raises to $47 and is all-in, UTG calls $32

      Turn: ($103.75) K (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($103.75) T (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      $103.75 pot ($3 rake)
      Final Board: Q 8 9 K T
      Hero mucked A A and lost (-$51.50 net)
      UTG showed 8 8 and won $100.75 ($49.25 net)

      22/13/438 af 0.9

      Against such a opponent, his raise would trips, combodraw(although AK brocked) so should I fold/

      and should I 3bet larger against UTG?

      As blasphemous as it may sound, folding AA in a 3bet pot, I think vs such a passive player, you are crushed really hard on this board. Vs this passive guy, I'm definitely going to keep barreling until he raises me, then I will just give up.

      Vs a LAG, I would definitely consider bet/call or even checking back to pot control. Remember that the relative hand strength of our AA is greatly diminished on such a board texture.

      Unless you think he c/r and stacks off with AQo, which I doubt he does, this is going to be a bet/fold. His range of flushes, sets, straights, and some pair+one heart type of hand, has you crushed really hard.
