      once he decides to c/r, he won´t fold.
      I think you can fold, because a lot of times you´re crushed, although against unknown I´d shove for value

      1- yep, my mistake
      2- what does "shove for value" mean exactly in this case? To make him fold? or for him to call with AQ?

      Both.
      You are happy both ways because if he folds he gives up his equity in the pot which is almost always over 25% (he has 25% of his stack invested this far) and if he calls - meh you lost some fold equity but you are still ahead, especially if he calls AQ.

      Notice if you had AA you'd prefer to get called since your pot equity would be greater than the fold equity you gain.
