      His 3bet from utg against utg is very strong and I'm expecting to see very strong hands like QQ+AK here so with AJ is a fold

      Flop and turn - I think I'll rather check call to bluff catch against missed over cards since his range is so strong.

      River - I'll still check it he's just way too strong.

      His Utg range is not necessarily that tight. It's NL2 and if villain is anyway aggro he might 3-bet pre-flop with wider range than just QQ/AK+. Usually these guys are quite straight forward post-flop, so when we get to post-flop, I think turn and river are absolutely good spots to bet. I'd say he would bet his QQ+ range here, if he had it.

      And if he really is passive type of guy post-flop (as most of NL2 players are), I'd be tempted to bet turn and river anytime and fold to raise.
