      i was wondering about a spot like this, seems to come up a lot

      UTG (26/23 ft3b:83, 4b:5) is a solid reg, MP is unknown

      i think raising here is pretty much an overplay cause we iso ourselfs vs a strong UTG range and we can never get called by a worse pretty much, but on the other hand, do we really wanna play 3-5 handed pot with AQ if we just flat here?

      whats the best line here? 3b/f?

      cause if it is 3b/f arent we here pretty much turning our hand into a bluff?

      I don';t think you can call it profitably but you can 3bet and make a profit. Yes, it's one of the best hands you can have but if you cannot call and 3betting even to fold to further action is +EV then 3betting is better. This is basically the top of your folding range so would go in your so called bluff 3betting range in a polarised range. In this spot you don't have to be super polarised or anything but AQo remains a nice hand to 3bet imo. OK playability when called, good blockers.
