      I would just fold A5 here. His attemp to steal is very low, and you'll never gonna be holding the strong A.

      As played, I fold to his c/r. He's a passive guy and when passive guys do that move, it usually means we're beat =)

      I think 3-bet both 3-bet and call is ok when you´re not playing abc poker. (That is raisign for example 347 boards). If you´re going to 3-bet make it 6$ at least.
      I think this is the board when you can also check behind, since it is hard to get value for worse hands and you can´t stand any action. If you´re going to bet then b/f seems better idea against that player.
