      Should I have folded to his raise on the flop? Could he have been doing that with AJ?

      Most of the time in this sitution he`s range is lika. 99-QQ or sets . Mybe AJ. KJ. Whit AA or i think he shoud re-raise pre-flop.

      Hello clandestineAl,

      Preflop: I'd still raise 4xBB. :)
      Postflop: The problem usually in those spots is that even if he is aggressive player they tend to play TP type of hands rather passively. :( Always try to take notes on that, it's a lot easier to play when you know how he plays his TP. For example if we wouldn't even add any kind of TP into his hand then we don't get that great equity:

      Board: J:heart: 6:diamond: 5:diamond:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    74.27%  74.27%   0.00% { JJ, 66-55, AdQd, AdJd, Td9d, 8d7d }
      UTG+1  25.73%  25.73%   0.00% { KdKs }

      Of course we could widen up a bit the range of the opponent but still wont be that great. If we are adding TP into his range or even QQ:

      Board: J:heart: 6:diamond: 5:diamond:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    40.97%  40.97%   0.00% { QQ-JJ, 66-55, AJs, AdQd, Td9d, 8d7d, AJo }
      UTG+1  59.03%  59.03%   0.00% { KdKs }

      Then we are doing pretty great.

      Best regards.
