      UTG: $59.64
      CO: $52.27
      Hero (BTN): $50.50
      SB: $15.74
      BB: $37.05

      Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is BTN with A :club: Q :heart:
      UTG calls $0.50, 1 fold, Hero raises to $2.50, SB raises to $15.74 all in, 1 fold, UTG calls $15.24, Hero calls $13.24

      Flop: ($47.72) 5 :club: 2 :club: T :heart: (3 players - 1 is all in)
      UTG checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($47.72) 2 :spade: (3 players - 1 is all in)
      UTG checks, Hero checks

      River: ($47.72) 4 :spade: (3 players - 1 is all in)
      UTG bets $43.90 all in, Hero folds

      UTG is 74/23/0/4.4 (vpip/pfr/3bet/af) over 31 hands
      SB is 40/8/0/1 (vpip/pfr/3bet/af) over 25 hands

      Should I fold preflop? I don't mind playing AQo against SB but what about that weird limp/overcall from UTG? I really got confused there and was going to fold but decided to call due to pot odds - I just need a little over 27% equity to call and I should hit a Q or an A once in three times.

      I didn't hit so I check it down unless I hit a pair - if so I am going broke. Is that ok?

      I'd just fold preflop.
      Villain is fish, but passive.
      Other reason is that you don't know what UTG donk will do.
      If he shoves or calls you are i very tough spot.

      Let's see what the judges think.

      Best regards,

      you can call preflop as you get quite good odds. fold is also a good option imo.
      If you dont hit, you can c/f it. If you hit your TP, you can put chips in.

      don´t really like folding AQ for 30bb especially when UTG also called.
      if you think he called with worse hands than yours then shove pf for value.
      Even if SB has smt like KK then utg might call with Ax and you might win ui postflop.
