      No stats. I mostly 3b AKo vs UTG, but I flat it sometimes as well. When BB cold called my c/r I got scared. He mostly has sets/two pair/maybe 78s, maybe something like AJ. Doubt he's barreling worse though...

      Preflop: SB is a bad position for calling, but I think if UTG is tight then AKo is a reasonable call.

      Flop: I don't like check/raising on the Flop unless you are prepared to play for stacks. You should be firing Turn and River, and expect UTG to call down with worse AX hands.

      If not you are better off just check/calling and allowing villain to barrel bluff.

      When BB cold calls you, and you are now afraid of him, I think you should just check/fold instead of check/call. I don't think he would call AQ here and bet it on the Turn. He'll probably pot control it by checking the Turn, or just fold it on the Flop.
