      Can i ask what you thought he had? I would lead him on and put lots of money in this hand maybe re-raise the flop to end it if you are scared of AA/KK.

      Just 4bet and call a shove preflop COvsBB with less than 100bb, you're never in that bad a shape and when you call AK you'll miss the flop too often with what could have been the best hand preflop.

      For that very reason if you also find a fold when you hit TPTK, then playing that hand with a call has no meaning at all. If you do decide to call in position you have to go broke with TPTK, only question is how. Given the steal situation he might sometimes by bluffing, so i'd likely tank a bit to encourage him then call the flop and call it off on any turn, i think it has more merit than just jamming the flop.

      Hope it helps.
