      1) Fold Preflop. He's short-stacked and you don't have good information about his frequencies. If he really has a large 3bet % over a huge sample, then this call is very standard. But for now you should fold.

      2) As played, given stack sizes, just check/shove. There's no other way to play it. And if you fold the Flop, you shouldn't even be playing this hand. I would consider c/c if he had 100bb, simply because c/r looks way too much like a flush draw. But now you can rep so many one pair hands, and also even if you get called you aren't losing too much with your short stack.
