      Howdy,

      Shove/fold pre. You have invested 40BB in hand so it may just get too ugly postflop, like he may fold JJ on A/K/Q board or AK on low board, etc. He will shove AA/KK anyway, so if he is capable of 4betting JJ/AK - you better use that preflop.
      BUT, UTGvsUTG1 action seems damn strong to me and I would respect his aggresion and fold QQ here (unless he is really aggro maniac). Blinds, COvsBTN, BTNvsBlinds - these are different situations.
      In fact against tight UTG raiser I don't mind calling here. Yes, it may induce unneeded multiway pot, but by 3betting we pretty much push away anything that may pay us, like AJ on Jxx board, TT/JJ on low board and stuff like that.

      Good luck!
