      Villain has AF1.5, AFq 56. At the time he was 31-14 on 21 hands.

      Pf: is the call ok? Postflop: is the turn still a call? And the river?

      Hey,

      I usually don't call AQ vs UTG, maybe if he is a bit wide and I am BU but in CO I dislike it since you give BU good odds to screw you over with a squeeze or flat.

      As played, his sizings look like a value range so I would lean towards folding. AK plays like this, AJ, flushes, possibly sets/FH now. All you beat are some splits so you call for split or loss, which means you need many splits.

      Pre-flop: I guess you would 3bet then instead? Is it for value or as a bluf then?

      In this case, the BU does not seem to be too 3bet happy (only 4%), so I think you can still flat in CO?

      Yeah, I usually prefer 3betting.

      BU doesn't 3bet much so that makes flatting a bit better than before but also thinking about his cold calling range. You have a good Ace but it's offsuit so playing it multiway with people having straight and flushdraws is gonna lower your equity.
