      I'd also call against that guy, only a set of 8 and 3 beats you here, I don't think he'd call preflop with QQ or AA.

      And 25 hands are good enough to see he's very loose with a big VP$IP, and he's agressive too, so call it.

      I'd call. That often could be also shove with flushdraw+pair.

      Flushdraw + pair would have raised you on the flop more likely than turn. Betting so much doesn't make much sense unless he has a set and is very sure you got somethign you might call with, if it's your standart move and you always bet with AK, AQ pf the same amount, then continue with an ace on board and ready to go far with an Ace then he's probably betting all-in for value here. Otherwise he can have A8 or A3 and he believes you hold a strong ace other than AQ, or he can be bluffing here like sick, you have no reads on him so it's a 50/50 decision here, on the one hand you don't wanna invest so much money in a relatively small pot with no nuts and vs someone you totally don't know; however, on the other hand, you have very good hand here, it's low limit game and you probably got him beat here. So call this when you feel lucky :-)
