If my UTG opening range for pocket pairs is 55+, then what should my opening range for suited connectors and suited one-gappers be?
You shouldn't have suited one-gappers in your UTG range and suited connectors should be 109s+. Hands like K10s are not bad either but I don't really consider that hand a suited gapper.
Pocket pairs are hands down better then all suited connectors(again I am not counting broadway hands in here, not sure if you do.)
There is a reason PP need 20-1 implied and SCs need closer to 50-1.
PP you can really play fit or fold and are easy to play and hard for villain to spot when you hit unlike suited connectors where flush/straights coming in are pretty obvious.
I would say you are overvaluing SCs at this point but hell, it is a pretty common thing and I still overvalue them in spots myself.
As for the hand, fold pre like others say. Also fold flop AP, we are crushed by his 3 bet range and do not have the equity to call a bet for 2p/trips. His 100% cbet range doesn't really carry over to his cbet range in 3 bet pots, especially on this flop. Even if he 3bet light with a suited ace, he hit. You also have to think he isn't 3betting UTG raises as light as he may be in other spots. Plus we are OOP so getting to showdown with bottom pair is almost never happening.
