      well I would also put AQo in his range and some draws (like AJs). In this case you just can't fold since you have decent equity (>45%).

      If he is so passive that he would only raise with trips, then you could fold, but without such a read I would shove as well.

      Hi Kruppe,

      From my experience, I believe most check/raises are strong hands. So I'd put him on a monster draw (A4s, A5s, 54s) or (more likely) a set (33,22), and against this range you have to fold.

      So, without any reads/stats I'd fold here and wait for a better spot to put my money in. IMO, there's no need to risk almost a whole buy-in when you don't have enough information on your opponent.

      However, if villain was shortstacked I'd push as well, simply because you I'd get better odds to call and I can't put a shortstack on such a tight range. They're usually "desperate" and would try some moves that doesn't make much sense.

      Or, If I knew villain is aggressive, I'd just call his flop bet, his stack will be less than pot size on the turn, and you'll end up stacking him even if he has a smaller PP, wich he'd probably fold against a push on the flop.
