      Hey B,

      It's a question of whether your opponent like to bluff IP when he misses or not. You can cbet for sure, and you also have a lot of flexibility when it comes to sizing. You can bet small to induce spew from A high, something like 1.50 or you can also go all the way up to shoving trying to look like a tilted A high.

      You wanna do what you think gives you better EV here which is not obvious with the very little info you have. I would be a bit slightly worried by the cold call but after 88 hands there's not much to say about his 3bet and 4bet stats so I cannot see a fold here against his stack but it's not a great spot either.
