Villain cold 3b: no stats
Villain opens: reg, 9/9/7 – super aggressive

I think I should fold without reads, but how about stack size, maybe calling is not a mistake?

Snap fold, and it's not even close.

I might not even call the nit's open, because AQ isn't beating anything in his UTG open range. You definitely can't call the cold shove, unless you have a specific note that says "3-bet jams with AJ (or worse)". Most of the time he has at least AK, if not a pair, so if you call, you're getting it in bad.
