He ought to be committed, but if he's bad enough to make that 3bet, he's also bad enough to fold to a decent 4bet or shove.
Yeah, completely agree that normally flatting here is a really bad idea, it's only because I think this guy is so bad that I think it's viable, not necessarily optimal, in this specific situation. If MP has a brain, he'll fold anything he opened w short of QQ (and maybe even QQ) because we're flatting 18BB, and if he shoves we're happy to get it in, so flatting will almost certainly get us HU with BTN/CO whatever his position is.
I think sindri's right, though, a pf shove looks so much like AK that it's the best option since I think he's more likely to call a shove than a 4bet.
