When to fold Aces

Big $2.20 I think

I'm not sure how to feel about this hand so I'd like some feedback

I bet my standard c-bet on the flop and get a shove from MP1 which I'm totally happy to snap off. T 5 3 is unlikely to be making 2 pair here there's plenty of top pairs and flush draws for this opponent.

Now comes the player on the Button casually flatting the shove which absolutely screamed monster to me but can we consider folding this hand ever?

Obviously I wasn't good enough to fold aces even though was 99% sure they had a set but the thing is if we do continue does it ever make sense to call? There is around $11680 and if we call it's 15,390 leaving the button with just around 7k. Money would be going in anyway so do we maybe chance that we get to a free showdown with flush completing and checking through?

PokerStars, $1.96 + $0.24 - Hold'em No Limit - 100/200 (18 ante) - 8 players

Re: When to fold Aces

buttons call here is pretty suspect but I don't think I could lay it down.
