No reads on raiser & cold-caller was 35/28 (46 hands).

I was torn between calling to see a cheap flop multi-way with a decent pp or squeezing. Is either play reasonable here, with no reads on UTG?
Once he raises it feels like he has QQ+, maybe AK so I fold.

I think it's close pre. I think i'd rather flat call given MP should have a fairly tight range for cold calling a utg open (AK, QQ etc). If it was CO open, BTN flat and we were SB i'd be pretty happy 3b/5b shoving.

As played if we assume he only 4bets AA/KK then it's a good fold. If he's been known to get out of line then we can flat and proceed cautiously.

Can't think of much more to add to what the birdster has already pointed out.

It all comes down to whether you think there is more value in 3-betting vs the opener's 3-bet-flatting range or in isolating the caller than the bitter taste an occasional 4-bet leaves denying you of a flop.
