This was a 1-3 nl cash game at a charity event. The games are pretty good. It was late in the session and I was moved to a new table. I'm sitting to the right of the dealer. There is a huge stack $1500 to my direct right. I was stuck $300 was hoping to finish out the session minimal damage. Player sitting across from me gets stacked by the huge stack QQ vs. 53s. 53s gets there. He leaved pissed and comes back later ready to start over. Never played against him before. He was playing a lot trying to bluff. Wasn't working for him. He had about $300 left.
Enough history here's the hand.
Utg(big stack): limps $3
Hero($500): opens AhQh $16
Fold to villian in sb($255): raises to $30
BB calls $30
Hero calls

Flop: Qs 5d 3d ($90)

Villian shoves $225 all-in.

BB folds

Hero: ‽??

    OK I'll bite. Seems like you are either a marginal favorite or a big underdog.

    I'll post later what I did. I will say I wasn't sure what to do.

    I did tank fold. I think if I wasn't stuck and it wasn't late in the session I make the call.

    I'd fold here given the bet size. These bets are almost always value and you don't beat enough of his value to call profitably. Sure, sometimes it's an overplay with KQ or JJ, or a diamond draw, but probably not often enough to make calling good.
