Hi GayLooser,

I'm basing my assumptions on an unknown villain as you give no reads.

I think you get yourself in a bit of a pickle preflop here.

I think I prefer flat-calling with AQs vs an UTG open. This keeps the pot a bit smaller which is desirable being out of position and we can see what happens OTF.

If you're going to 3Bet, I'd 3Bet bigger because we are out of position, say to $0.50.

When the UTG raiser 4Bets at 5NL - I would insta-muck the AQ. I don't really see any good scenario that can come out of seeing a flop. His range is very narrow and likely consists of QQ+, maybe AKs. For some villains even this range is too loose and his UTG open and 4Bet range might be only KK/AA.

As played I would just fold the flop. You're out of position against someone who's taken aggressive actions at every opportunity and are likely drawing to only four outs.

I think you played the turn and river fine.
