      It depends on his c/r range. If he can c/r AQ|AJ he is probably calling with it too so I don't mind a shove right on the flop.
      If he only c/r fd (and folding to a shove) go ahead and call.
      Then it depends on how aggo. is he.
      If he looks passive, the type of guy that will check on a blank card hoping to see a free card and still fires I don't mind a fold.
      If he is good and knows that he should continue representing a monster and fires on blank turn we are going broke.

      Going broke is fine when in doubt, he doesn't even have 100bb. It's not really a thrilling situation for us since he looks somewhat tight over the first 100 hands, but we can't discount him having a worse Ax either and just be overplaying it, so we'd both like to stack worse Ax hands before it gets ugly and get it in against draws before they hit/miss if he can have that. We have the backdoor nutflush draw for some extra equity and we're only in really bad shape if he shows us a set. Sets aren't easy to get.

      Hope it helps.
