It's a boring answer but I would just fold pre. Calling is about the worst you can do. ATo is such a trouble hand against 2. You will always be behind to at least one of them.
If you wanna play ATo here, 3bet pre and make it potsize because you are OOP all the way (but I wouldnt 3bet)

Your raise on the flop is too small. You should raise about 3x his bet.


I would prob fold turn but good thing you are a member of #IHateFolding

His riverbet is rediculous, must call (or shove as it looks soooooo weak)


My option only !

I'm either folding or 3-betting preflop. I don't want to call and have a marginal hand OOP.

it is hard to fold because the odds is so attractive, i just need to win 27% to break even

It's a marginal hand that can be too easily dominated. Playing too many marginal hands from the SB is a leak that many players have (know I had it too when I first started). It looks cheap, but due to the positional disadvantage, this is the spot at the table that I need to be playing the smallest number of hands from.
