      Villian is playing 17/6 after 54 hands, is it better to 3b such a tight player pre? Also is my fold too nitty, I felt like I might be running into AA, QQ maybe AK AQ a lot,

      If villain isn't tilted, I'd muck that too. He seems nitty and you need more than 40% of equity on turn against his range so that you're call can be profitable. I doubt 17/6 guy is bluffing there and he shouldn't be valuebetting worse that way.

      Calling IP with AK is fine against EP openers. It's good for balancing and squeeze protection. Just remember to make sure that your 3betting range vs. utg openers doesn't get too tight, meaning just KK+.

      you can 3-bet, but since he opened really huge to 7bb I think I´d fold also
      If that is his standard opening size, then I´d consider also re-raise/folding to take initiative
      Likely turn fold is fine, he played that hand very strangely and it seems like bluff or AA. Doubt he´d play that way QQ or AQ, but if you don´t have reads then fold is perfectly fine
