      there is not too much to say about this hand,but let's give it a try:

      Please have a look at our Starting hand chart:
      Starting Hand Chart, linked in our article How to play before the flop

      There you can see that preflop after a limper you should just limp,too. Of course, if you feel comfortable playing potentially out of position against MP3, CO and BU there's nothing wrong with raising,too.

      As played you should surely bet out on an ace high flop, making it difficult for your opponent to guess whether you got an Ace or not - please see chapter continuation bet in our article How to play on the flop

      Coming to a point: and of course you should fold the flop after getting raised. Even against a pure flush draw you are not performing too good. (if you are interested in seeing how you perform against certain hands or ranges on that flop) you should have a look at our PokerStrategy.com-Equilator, to be found here: ->Strategy->Poker-Tools->The Equilator or directly at http://www.pokerstrategy.com/software/6/
      Even if your opponent is bluffing - you can't play on against future bets,so just fold the flop.
