      I`m giving villain this range: JJ-22,AQo-ATo,KQo-KJo,AQs-A5s,KQs-KTs,QJs

      FLOP
      Is this a standard AI on flop? There are small number of 9x in his hand, he could have 66. As he`s so aggressive, I have to think, he`s doing the same with TT, JJ and some FD`s.

      I also see TT-JJ sometimes QQ in his range here. There is also 7s8s, T9s, 98s, 66, 99 and maybe AsTs-AsKs.

      However, those are all assumptions and a high AF doesn't mean that much on a paired board, where opponents usually play quite differently. I would tend not to make such a loose assumption on his range here, as he has position and would probably only call a lot of hands in that range. The raise thus balances his range strongly into the direction of 9X.

      Personally, unless I have a good reason to, I don't play sheriff on this kind of board and just let it go.

      Hello dienaszaglis,

      Difficult to get away here anyways and there are draws around. I'd also just 3bet it and get it in, we ain't getting away here anyways vs more aggressive player who could even raise there with draws.

      Best Regards.
