      Ask yourself:

      - what kind of hand does he prob hold? pp? sc? Ax?
      - if you think he has worse pp but will bluff you, you can c/c
      - if you think hes a station calling down any pair, then bet!
      - if you think he can have sc then bet for protection but prob fold to raise(unless he likes to bluff raise).
      - if you think he can have Ax, then you can c/c once and fold to 2barrel. If hes bluffing the flop he will think twice of bluffing turn with air, thinking you are slowplaying your A.

      I just noticed he is a midstack. I prob c/c flop, since he will prob call your c/r with an A and fold his bluffs. If you think he calls without an A(pair or draw), then c/r is good.

      I would bet turn if he checks flop, since FD is out there and second A lowers probability of him having one.

      hes range is v. wide and hes short with close to a pot size bet left on the flop
      personally i would just b/c has hes range is not just and ace but lots of connecters and draws.
      his stack is at a wierd amount so hes props not a good player either and think on level 1.
