UTG isn't the most solid player ever, but he is multi tabling and he always seems to be up in money (not necessarily a winning player I know)
I've been playing cash games for about a week now and I've seen him almost every session.
I wish I took notes, because I'm trying to remember what kind of a player he is... I was almost dead sure he had AK+ here, and perhaps that made me remember him as a sort of trapping player... allowing opponents to cbet and bluff too often is a good way to make some pennies, so it makes sense.
In any event, I bet on the smaller side
to get value of his actual limping hands... flush draws, maybe those gutshot/pair hands, etc.
When he raises, there isn't much that makes sense other than AK, KK, or AA. (Most likely AK here...), and even if it was a legit "limp," it could be QJ.
I did notice this preflop, and I was planning to fold if he 3bet at all.
