Default A high value bet

I never know when to make a value bet with A high. I almost never do. Did this look like a good spot? Villain is 50/9/1.

Party Poker 20/40 Hold'em (6 handed) FTR converter on zerodivide.cx

Preflop: Hero is CO with A[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], Q[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img].
<font color="#CC3333">UTG raises</font>, <font color="#666666">1 fold</font>, <font color="#CC3333">Hero 3-bets</font>, <font color="#666666">3 folds</font>, UTG calls.

Flop: (7.50 SB) 2[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], 6[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], 5[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>

I think this is very poor. I take the showdown just about every time here.

UTG's range may be a little too narrow this time, but this is a good spot for it sure. in general, most A-high value bets come when youre in a steal situation against a blind.

he is passive enough to have an overpair here. so no its not a good spot for a value bet, but he might fold AK.

i still take the free showdown.

I do not believe he is passive enough to have an overpair. I was fairly certain he would c/r the flop or turn with one (probably flop).

I would definitely bet this. No way he's folding an ace on this board.
