First, I’d recommend 3-betting a larger sizing when you’re 3-bet squeezing. I’d make it 4.5x to include the pre-flop caller…so closer to $0.90 to increase fold equity and your probability of winning the hand pre-flop.

So questions you need to consider to help with your decision making process:

1) What is UTG’s open-raising range and 3-bet continuing range pre-flop?

2) What is your perceived 3-betting range?

3) Has UTG seen you 3-bet before?

4) Do you appear to be an aggressive or fairly straight forward 3-bettor?

5) What is UTG’s percieved 3-bet calling range?

5) How does UTG play post-flop? Is he fit-or-fold or will he float c-bets?

Answer these questions and they’ll help us come to a conclusion with how you should play your hand on the flop.

1) UTG’s VPIP and PFR are both 18. I would say AJ or better TT or better. This is on Bovada so I only have 39 hands of history. 

2) My 3Bet is 4.3% so AKs KK AA

3) I’m using DriveHud on bovada so I get cumulative stats on all my hands. Not sure if he has seen my 3bet in this game.

4) Straightforward on my 3bet. Traditionally this is how I play.

5) UTG perceived 3-bet calling range is probably TT or better AK, AKs

6) UTG is 2/2 on Cbet, 5/6 on bet if checked to, I would assume an aggressive player

Sorry for the delayed response. So since villain’s 3-bet calling range is composed of TT+ and AK, you should be check/folding this flop because you’ll be way behind on this flop versus his range. You can plug his perceived range versus your hand on this flop in Equilab to compute the equities. If his flatting range was much wider, such as ATs+, KQs+, 22+ you might consider check/calling but still might be a fold because we typically don’t want to float out of position with ace-high.
