      Hi.

      I would probably never fold this hand. I would call here since he made a small 2.5BB open raise. But if you don't think you can play the hand profitably against this player, you can just 3bet this as a bluff anyway. AXs are decent to play with the initiative.

      Thanks.

      Definitely villain dependent (including squeeze stats of sb/bb), it's a call be default though. Just be careful, you're goal with these hands is to make a flush not really top pair, be prepared to let it go with just TPNK facing heavy action. Very often they turn into bluff catchers (with TPNK) so be prepared for that.

      It's also good hand to 3b bluff with too, because it has good playability and has a blocker.

      In the SB I probably just 3bet or fold.
      In the BU i prefer calling. But if I know the preflop raiser is tight, I may just 3bet it instead of call.
