      It's unlikely for him to have a bigger set.

      With the minraise and 4betshove i think he has a flush. If you feel comfortable playing in 65/35 situation call. You need 39% to call so it will be -EV.

      I'm not that happy getting it in on the flop, since your equity won't be great. Once you 3bet and he shoves - I just call it off though since you almost have enough equity vs flush and occasionaly he will show up with A :spade: J type hands, QT (if he's bad), or random stuff.

      You can always treat your hand as a draw when he check/raises the flop.

      Sounds fine. The truth is since he's in the big blind, it's a lot more likely for him to have 2 random spades than another strong made hand, since you have no idea whether he's capable of playing the naked As like that. Given that I think calling the flop and calling any turn hoping to boat up might be a bit better than going broke on the flop, especially since I don't think it'll prevent most players at these stakes to pay off a big bet when the board pairs. If you disagree about him rarely playing AsX like that, then your line is fine.


      Hope it helps.
