      No-Limit Hold'em, $1.00 BB (9 handed) - Hold'em Manager Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      saw flop

      CO ($147.55)
      Button ($100)
      SB ($35.15)
      BB ($119.80)
      UTG ($44.60)
      UTG+1 ($50)
      Hero (MP1) ($18.50)
      MP2 ($20)
      MP3 ($99.55)

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with A, Q
      UTG calls $1, 1 fold, Hero bets $4.50, 3 folds, Button calls $4.50, 2 folds, UTG raises $43.60 (All-In), Hero?

      I found 12/8 ccalling me rather strange with either a PP or monster hand, then UTG decides to limp/3bet which means to me that my A:hQ is mostly no good.

      I cant see BTN as 100% dead money so that adds some more things into the equation to consider.

      Would you shove here? if so/if not -> could you elaborate on your decision?

      From stats I'd say limp/raiser has a monster or he wants to be fancy and decide to take the money on the table with some crappy hand, but I'm pretty sure he has a monster since his 3-bet is so low.

      So, considering opinion he most probably holds monster like QQ+ I would fold.

      On the other hand, UTG doesn't seem like a really decent player and for this reason if you are little bit of a showdown monkey you might call for info since you only need 34.3% equity and with AQs you can achieve this pretty fast.

      i think against his range we cant call i think alot of monsters and some small pockets as bluff.
