      I'd check/call the flop, MP2 looks like the type of guy that will just fire out with anything after you check an A-high board to him. Plus, it's hard for him to call with worse than J9 in that spot if we bet out.

      As played you pretty much need to put him on some sort of aggressively played redraw to continue on the turn, everything else he'll raise that turn with after you led out strong on 2 streets on an A-high board has you beat in my opinion. Maybe sometimes he plays a big Ax like that, but why would he limp it preflop? I'd either fold right on the turn or call the raise and check/reevaluate on blank rivers.

      Hope it helps.
