      Quite though, aggressive regular, raising / checkraising a lot.
      On the flop I would have been happy to go broke with my FD+2oc.
      After he calls on the flop, what would you play on the turn? Looking back at the hand the turn betsize sucks, it just doesnt big enough to commit me to the pot, just tells Villain that I want a fold... If I bet bigger, than decision is easy even after a chR, because I have an oddscall.
      As played, after turn chRAI it is quite on the borderline, if I take all his semibluffs into account, I could have the odds to call.
      Other option would be checkbehind turn, but this way I can give him the chance to bluff me on the river (which he might not do, given his relatively low river aggression).

      he would likely call with worse hands if you 3-bet AJs sb vs bb, so you can always 3-bet there for value.
      I think getting all-in flop is fine and I am fine b/c turn. I think betting a little more to 7.3$ would give you more fold equity (although he is likely getting all-in his overpairs whatever you bet).

      Against overpairs your equity is not the best
      board: Td9c7c5s
      Hand Equity Wins Ties
      AcJc 29.40% 306 9
      AA-99 70.60% 741 9

      but I think his range is likely wider and we add some draws to his c/rai range you´re not doing too bad

      board: Td9c7c5s
      Hand Equity Wins Ties
      AcJc 42.21% 887 9
      AA-77, Kc*c, Qc*c 57.79% 1,216 9

      best regards,
