      In the hand I thought that his play mainly fits a draw and I raised AI in order to get value from them and also because I couldn't figure many value hands in his range because of his aggro preflop stats.

      He quickly bets big the turn and for me it looks like either a shove or a fold.

      Please explain your thoughts on the hand and specify on which stats you base your play in this situation.

      Since you raised from UTG and it is Axx flop I think he won´t c/r you with too many draws- likely KQs, QJs, sometimes J9s, 89s if he even call these hands pf, so most likely you´re against made hands- ATs, 88 and sometimes AK that he decided not to 3-bet pf
      If you think he has enough draws in his range then playing b/c flop and shoving turn is fine, but I would generally just b/f flop. he has just too many times there made hands, instead of some bluff or draw
