      I´d call flop. Sb lead strong into 3-bettor, so he isn´t folding to your re-raise and can´t understand why you want to get all-in with A high on that flop.

      There is a strong argument for folding on the flop.

      Who donks there after 3-bet PF?

      You have some backdoor potential and a gutshot, with two overcards. You can be almost sure that your overs will not be enough if you hit, so that leaves you just the less than stellar options.

      If you feel like gambling (and burning money) you can call to see turn.. but it's a bad play.. not worse than calling his re-raise, tho.. (costs about four times less.. and you have NO fold equity).

      If I knew you will judge the hands I wouldnt ever post the results.
      Blinds battle thats happens he could easily try to take it down

      the flop was hard desicion, lets assume I had 8-10 outs
