      Hey, I don't feel very comfortable with a coldcall in this spot. I prefer 3-betting, but I don't think I have enough foldequity and not many worse hands will call my 3bet. What about a fold, do you think to dodge such a marginal spot is ok?

      Utg range and mp ranges are very strong but if we put in a 3bet here we look extremely strong so I expect a reasonable amount of fold equity. Calling is out of the question because our range is doing poorly against theirs but I think AQo is a very strong hand that is not good enough to call and can go into our 3betbluff range. If you are not comfortable 3betbluff then folding is the next best option
