      Villain is 20/15 in 21 hands, so basically not very known much.

      Is flat calling just fine or should i have just 4betted?
      He checked on the flop, should I have just made a bet with Ace on flop?
      the reason why I checked all the way because i though, if he really had made a loose squeeze play, i would win the pot on showdown.

      Hello YinYangS,

      Kind of dumb spot, most likely I wouldn't play it any differently if we even expect him being able to squeeze there in that kind of spot. Neither I wouldn't Bet the flop since he may easily just Check/Call there as well with Ax hands, rather Check behind and take a look what kind of hand plays this way.

      Best Regards.
