Default HUSnG early in the match: stack-off decision

Imagine the situation like this:

you just have started, played several hands and you are sure the opp is a fish, but you really do not have any strong reads.

AK is dealt to you, he calls, the board is like AT39 two-tone on the flop. You bet he calls, then obv (?) betting turn and got raised or check-raised (seems committing or close to that). Is it a standard stack-off or folding is ok? What things can shift your decision towards one or another option?

You practically cam never fold AK against anyone on that board for 75bbs HU and make a profit doing it, although in theory there are some players against whom you should fold, in practice this s a very standard stack-off.

Ok, I'll keep doing it but will count how many 2p+ they will show
Yeah, basically it is a question of can he bluff and/or slowplaying weaker ace, vs he flopped or turned 2p+

If the player is super tight, it makes it a tough decision. Otherwise, raise pre & bet bet BET!
