      Villian is 21/19/2.3 but only 20 hands. I have two questions here. Firstly should I 3-bet UTG raise with AKs?? Second what would you do vs that squezz. I didn't know what to do and finally timed out... Should I call and try to hit my A/K? flush draw/shove/fold??? :f_confused:

      It's all villian dependant. Who is utg and will they call you 3b with worse f.e. AQ/AJ, if not the standard line is to call and take a flop in position. vs a squeeze, you can back ship it -> push all in, if everyone folds you win 36BB and you have blockers to strong hands KK+ AK. It's a good stop to squeeze and I think a 21/19 can be doing it with a wide range. Calling could be an option as you will have position on the squeezer which is very important and you encourage the other players to come along.

      When the hand shows down I think it's very important to take a note on what the players have as this can be very useful for you making the best decision next time.

      Do you think ppl are squeezing vs UTG ranges? I mean this is FR and ppl are so tight UTG (unless he's a maniac).
      Which one is villian? UTG or the squeezer?

      I actually don't mind a 4-bet. UTG has folded and squeezer (if he is capable of this) could be doing this with PPs like 88-JJ which your flipping vs and he could also fold them. Not to mention AJ-AQ

      I would generally 3-bet AKs there but I think call is also fine
      When one player squeezes I think you should at least call unless you want to shove yourself. When you hit your tptk it is easy play postflop and you can play for stacks also with AKs you can hit nuts on the flop :P
