      Hey,

      After seeing the 42o hand I am very unlikely to try fancy stuff against him. He limps in weak and then calls, so when he limp/raises he will usually have KK+.

      Your hand ie very unplayable even if he has less than KK so I would fold preflop. If you have Axs I think calling pre and approaching postflop IP is fine.
