      Hi.

      His open raise is really large at 5bb. I think your 3b size is fine.
      With only a potsize bet left on the flop we have two options.

      1. Shove flop
      2. Checkcall flop

      Folding is surely not an option. Shoving purely for protection makes sense vs more passive opponents. The pot is already so large and we dont want to give free cards.

      Checkcalling is better vs aggro opponents who will often bet when checked to. If he bets less than a pot sized bet we can just checkraise for protection.
