      Hi Hingpoker,

      Preflop: What do we know about UTG+2? Is he a fishy guy or tighter regular? If he is a regular I don't like the 3-bet as much in these positions.

      Postflop: As played this also comes down to what we know about MP2. Can we expect him to call AQ/AJ preflop and raise there?

      In general, since we are in the pot with so many guys I'd still look at bet/folding about $1 because between so many guys they are very prone to be set mining and they rarely raise naked Ax on the flop.
