Really tired... but I've wanted to post some hands for awhile.  I thought this was interesting.

No info about the utg raiser, the BB is like (30, 9, 2), but I wouldn't consider him very good.

What's your turn play? This really is brutul.  And I think the correct play on the flop and turn is honestly to just call. 
But when it's 2 bets back aroud....

Ugh, that's a really difficult turn decision with no read on UTG.  The only thing you can infer is that he's probably not a good player, since no regular ever limp-reraises these days.  I'd assume the BB could just as easily have 88 or something, so it really comes down to what a limp-reraise means from UTG.  With no info I'd always assume AA or KK, in which case I think you made a good laydown.  At best it looks as though you're splitting with AK, but it may get capped behind you and cost you three big bets and possibly at least a few more on the river.  Paying four or more big bets for at best half the pot isn't an attractive option.  Horrible hand to have to lay down, but I think you played it well.

Tony utg actually opened raised.  I 3-bet after the cold caller, and then he capped. 

I was worried about folding to AK, but the fact that one king is out on the board, and I have one king, that only leaves two other kings in the deck.  One of them likely has a king, but either player could have a Q, and utg looks to have AA.

Oh sorry, yeah I don't know why I thought he'd limp-reraised.  I think you still played it fine.  There's just a lot more bets that could go in when you're splitting at best, and it's going to be very expensive when you're not.

I would have a really hard time believing that one of these 2 has either AA, KK or the Queen, maybe BOTH AA and one with the lone Q.  I would (bitterly) fold here.
