    Good question. Your hand plays well vs AAxx, but not well at all vs AQKxds, or KKxx type of hand, so it's a matter of knowing your opponent and trusting your postflop skills. Because you are OOP, I would say folding is almost never wrong. However, you are closing the action and are guaranteed a HU pot, where your non nut draws actually have much more value, so once you gain confidence in your postflop skills, I would say you can try defending this some of the time. What is good for you here is that you are guaranteed a HU pot vs a range that includes lots of AAxx, just because your hand is doublesuited and decently connected. But since you are still learning at the lower limits vs a tight player, I like a fold because of 5 dangler, one of our suit only to the T, and we are OOP...it helps you avoid a lot of marginal difficult spots.
