      Hi,

      I think this is a fold.. He bets quite big and once you call the flop you definitely hit that board yet he barrels on a card that coordinates it even more thus giving you a lot more equity usually. It's hard for him to bluff with so small equity here in his whole range that you can call so folding is best.

      Why wouldn't you 3bet/call shove? I think there is a lot of value in 3betting.

      48% is not super wide from BU and when we include hands in our opponents range we usually have to start with hands that have us in quite bad shape like AQ, plus other pairs, he won't start of by getting it in with AT.

      It might still be +EV to stack off but playing HU with AJo against his stack will definitely show a good profit.
