      You should fold, because you set yourself up the opportunity to fold with such a minimal 5bet.

      If you thought he was being aggressive in a late position blind war then you should commit to a 5bet-shove line with a proper 5bet.

      Otherwise you could either do what you did and put in a weak 5bet in a 5bet-fold line, called with 15-1 on looking for a set in position, or folded.

      Vs a nit id have called for set value, but I like your line vs normal, assuming you folded to the shove.

      What's with the min 5bet?
      I'm guessing it's rush poker since you didn't gave us stats. You got two options call the min 4bet and play him IP or 5bet to a normal size and go broke.
      His line is scary(what is he min 4betting with?) but screw it, BU vs CO I'm going broke even if it's 170bb deep.

      since you´re ip you can always just call and see flop
      since player can easily 4-bet with wider range than AA then I don´t mind playing ip against that range. If board comes 224 then I´m happy either calling down or raising flop and getting all-in if he wants to.
      if you 5-bet and he shoves then his range is a lot tighter and often you see AA, so I don´t like taking 5-bet/call or 5-bet/fold line there
