      Note: "-01/13 nl50, vs me, 40bbs, 3bet/ship vs min4bet ATo SBbu"

      Not sure how to play this, I think I have a marginal shove or min4bet/c.

      I do think I can call profitably, but this flop is not any good so I fold. Would call with a club.

      I think preflop call vs such a small 3bet will be best. You might be good with 4betting as well and be +EV but calling is best EV imo.

      Postflop, ofc you can consider calling with a club but as it is, folding is best. Even with a club though, it's tough because you are likely to face heat on the turn as well. I would prefer non-A high flop so you can count overs as potential outs.
