      As a rule you should only call preflop if you think seeing a flop will improve your situation. With a pair this means hoping to hit a set, but you dont have implied odds here to play for set value - so calling his reraise is a mistake which can only leave you in a more awkward spot than you were in before. Either call his initial bet for set value, or fold to his 4-bet.

      As played fold to shove on flop - although you dont have many hands on him his AF is very low and you are probably beaten by a higher pair.

      You cannot call preflop since he will shove any flop (as it happend). Either shove or fold. I would

      As played, I might prefer fold preflop in FR against such a player.

      On the flop, you must call.

      Preflop: Definitely Calling is here wrong, you either have to shove or fold.
      I'd like to shove it here.

      As played
      Flop: You have to call here. Because, you need ~34% equity.
      Pot is 6.45 and we have to call 3.30. So 6.45:3.30 means 1.96:1
      Equity: 1.96+1=2.96 -> 1/2.96=0.34 that means 34% equity.
      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 59,641% 59,641% 0,000% 40,359% QQ+, AKs, AKo
      Player 2: 40,359% 40,359% 0,000% 59,641% JJ

      Here we see that you get the equity, so Call.

      Best regards,
