Do not like and sizing is not great either, three bet to at least 2.5x to 3x their raise if you want them to fold anything. They start the hand with about 30BB effective and while some steal from UTG, many have strong ranges and are prepared to meet a three-bet with a shove here.
I would usually just flat my whole range against a tight player's UTG raise, set mining and looking to flop well when deep, while also setting traps with big hands against aggressive tables that like to squeeze pre-flop.
I'd rather flat here and 3-bet with 65s, if you are going to turn the hand into a bluff, make it a bluffing hand, not one with as much value as AQ. For the most part 3-bet a polarized range either as a bluff or with value.
Good luck to you!

re: Poker & Re Raise fold PF?
Yeah I didnt realise my sizing was only 2x his bet :/, Yeah AQ is a tricky one especially against a tight UTG open, he was pretty polarised.

Flatting here would be my default against an UTG 3x open. If UTG is reallyyyy tight in EP I might fold and not tell anyone about it, mainly because of the amount of rejam stacks behind who will be squeezing wider than usual with the bubble bursting.
