      Even though UTG is somewhat loose, his EP raise is bound to be tighter than the avg, and MP3 doesn't look like a loose caller at all, so I don't think your ATo gets enough of an edge against their ranges. Fold pre-flop imo

      For quick squeeze decisions on the spot I like checking the re-raise charts. Against UTG+2 you don't 3 bet ATo even if he is raising 18%, so you can expect to be far behind his range. And even though theCC allows you to go a little looser due to +FE and +pot odds, it sill isn't enough in this case, I believe.

      Hey Tim64,

      according to the chart you could push AJo with dead money against UTG2 15PFR player. I think this is very marginal or even -EV, also because MP3 is very tight player, from the stats you can see he doesn't cold call very often, so I would be a little more careful. You could check positional stats of the openraiser in case he isn't much tighter in EP, but does fold often to 3-bet, then squeeze with ATo might be profitable, but according to stats provided that's a fold.
