      I have moved your hand to our hand discussion forum, because it’s fits better there.
      Maybe good to post your own though process as well, but without reads on the BTN a fold on the flop is fine. You beat only a flush draw and if he’s crazy weaker Ax combo’s.

      If you have no information about him then I would see the following hands in his range for preflop raises from the BTN:

        AA, KK, QQ, JJ, TT
        AK, AQ, AJ, AT
        KQ, QJ,
        maybe mid-pairs

      The only hands you would beat are: KK, JJ, AJ, KQ, QJ, mid pairs. And you would tie against AK.

      Without any information you cannot assume that Villain would push all-in with such weak hands (only one pair, either bad kicker or overcards on the board). Most of the time he will have you beat with a set or at least two pair.
