      board is pretty drawy so i guess calling is quite bad, so the question is should i go broke here ?

      He seems rather laggy over 40 hands, so he might call you with speculative stuff as well as premium hands preflop. When he raises that board which you likely c-bet with all your range, he could have all sorts of combo draws with which he'll try to make a move on you to make you fold anything that isn't AQ+. He might also have AK himself figuring he will stack AQ by playing his hand like a draw, and of course sometimes a set that beats you using the same reasoning.

      I don't think you can fold that without better reads, if you do you will end up only defending with sets in that spot, which makes you highly exploitable. Just shove over his raise and make a note on the showdown.

      Hope it helps.
