Hi. Why 3bet the UTG? Since no worse will call, and no better will fold.

I agree with morduk, I don't really like 3Betting with AQo in your position. His opening range should be tighter than normal UTG and you should know that, which means that your 3Bet looks very strong with 4 players still to act. Therefore you're only likely to get action from the UTG with a narrow range of hands, all of which are ahead of you, say TT+ and AK.

As played I think calling two streets and folding to a third barrel is OK. He could play KK or AJ like this hoping to bluff you off Ax. Once he bets the river I think you are behind often enough to fold.
