      I was unsure whether I should 3bet here. My reasons for 3betting is that I would raise for value against the fish and that there is a lot of dead money in the pot. but the reason for not 3betting in the original raiser is utg and is a tag.

      $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Holdem
      6 Players
      Hand Conversion Powered by weaktight.com

      UTG ($25.25)
      UTG+1 ($25)
      CO ($25)
      BTN ($25.29)
      SB ($46.41)
      Hero ($25.60)

      Pre-Flop: ($0.35, 6 players) Hero is BB A:diamond: Q:heart:
      UTG raises to $1, 1 fold, CO calls $1, BTN calls $1, 1 fold, $0.75 to Hero ($25.35)?

      If his TAG, his UTG range is rather strong and with two callers 3betting may lead to some difficult postflop spots being OOP. If UTG calls your raise, CO/BTN may do it as well if they have hands that want to have acceptable odds to see the flop. I may just fold this, but not sure if it's the best play here, because I just don't like playing AQo OOP in 4way pot...

      IMHO you can squeeze here cause in SH play even a tag can raise UTG with small PP or KQs or something, that he will fold to 3-bet and I don't think other 2 players have that strong hands. Also, there is enough of dead money in the pot to try to squeeze it.

      IMO fold is also ok after two callers and call is the worst option OOP.

      Just my humble opinion.

      If UTg is very nitty I think call or fold are better, if he is loose I like 3-bet and take initiative
      If you hit your tp hand it is very easy to play postflop, just bet and and get it in
