Exceptions to the SHC?

      I have Pokertracker and GameTime+ (a watered down, free version of Pokerace HUD) and I have one question about the Starting Hands Chart. I know with AQ, you're supoosed to fold if there was a raise before you, but what if the person that raised has a VP$IP of 57% and a PFR of 45%? Wouldn't that mean that the majority of hands that he's raising/playing with are garbage? I mean, yeah, I may run into a monster every now and then, but wouldn't be profitable in this situation to call or maybe even raise him? Could situations like this be classified as "exceptions" to the SHC?

      Just wanted to get some feedback on that, I may be wrong here. (I managed to get my chips all-in on him on the flop with top pair, top kicker. I doubled up so it turned out great... that time, lol)

      But, I'm moreso concerned with the longterm effects... comments?
