      that is one of the worst flops imaginable for your hand in a 3bet pot
      I would definatly just check behind on the flop and reevaluate on the turn

      You say A2s bad cards, donkey say moooonnnneeeeyyyyzzz. So he prolly has a weak ace especially because it's a 3bet pot.

      PS: Don't bet marginal hands into a calling station. Check them down and only bet for value.

      He can check out of many reasons:

      1. He is a passive player.
      2. He fears you have a better ace.
      3. He is trapping with something a lot better than an odd top pair.
      4. He has no idea what he is doing, he just likes to put a tick on the check/call instruction the poker software might have.

      if you´re sure that he´d call down with worse hands, then go ahead and shove turn
      Just he won´t fold there Ax and not sure he would call with flushdraws or Qx
      So maybe better is check back turn and then call river bet, since calling stations usually isn´t going to valuebet just one pair hands
