      Hello chocular77,

      The problem is that BB looks kind of fishy and I would even expect him to have enough of draws there in his range. Therefore I would just raise the flop and protect my hand. If we Call there like that then most likely being in 3bet pot he wont continue anyways. If he has the Ax then he is willing to pay anyways or even draws.

      Best Regards.
