Given the stats and positional actions I don't mind folding. With the Ac blocker he should be semibluffing less thus having more made hands in his range.

Hi tony,

I agree with birdayy... the tricky part here is that he will be flatting pre with 99-JJ mostly rather than 3-betting them, but it's not too tricky because it seems like from his stats he would tend to call again on the flop with those, not raise big. He also seems like type to call with draws rather than semi-bluff them, and we block the nut flush draw as well. In short, we are probably folding the best hand sometimes, but not often enough to be too concerned about it.

Thank you guys. I've learned something from this. The fact I'm holding the blocker has never entered into my thinking before.
