      AJo from UTG seems quite wide plus now you get called by 3 players it's super tough to get value given the board and your perceived range from UTG. Unless people go to showdown often or basically call draws to the river you should definitely check/call to pot control a bit, induce lighter bets. It's hard to believe you will ever be ahead of the range of what normal people call flop vs a UTG cbet. Yes, you will beat some draws that have good equity and position but also get owned by all 2pair+ hands.

      Fold preflop for sure imo, no value when you hit.

      I remember there was 2 fishes about 50/10.
      If there are some fish on the table, I use wider OR range from UTG. For example: KQ AJ ATs KJs, because against fishes i have a lot of top pair vaule cause they will defray with a lot of worst Ax, Kx.
      It isn't a good thought?

      That's very good but do all the players involved here qualify? You can consider your hand for value just vs some and a 0EV bet vs others or even slightly -EV that is overall profitable because of the fish calling light.

      The problem still remains of being OOP with an unplayable hand though. I understand that when you flop TPTK you get value but how often do you flop that and how much value do you actually get? Suited hands are a lot more playable so ATs >>>> AJo in this spot imo because the kicker issues are about the same while the extra flushdraw is very valueable.

      As played, if you think you get called on the flop by random Ax and draws, vbet turn as well and play river against that range and using his AFq. By this I mean, estimate how many of his busted draws will he bet on the river compared to his value hands and make an educated play. You will obv not be right 100% of the time but it will be good enough.
