      Whatever you do, do not flat call with it. You'll be out of position, up against a tight range from a UTG tag open raiser, and you'll also miss most flops while being always in fear of being dominated when you do flop a top pair and get bet into on multiple streets.

      3-betting is better but you need to know how tight that guy is from UTG. He seems decently loose for a tag but if he's only raising 22+, AJ+, KQ you'll need to be very careful postflop when he calls. Out of position in a 3bet pot you'll be hard pressed to fold any top pair you flop, and yet against good players if the money goes in your hand won't be best very often. You need decent hand reading skills to negotiate all those possible situations properly.

      Folding is the default option and will keep you from making a mistake with those hands that look pretty but are called "trouble hands" for a reason :)

      Hope it helps.
