      Ooooh can't believe I'm going to say it but I tend to either fold the flop (!!) or call flop fold turn to big bet there mostly against that guy. Standard TAG calling from SB.... raising A high flop.. we know what that means. A standard TAG who called AQ or AJ in the SB would most likely just call you down on this board (he wouldn't go broke for sure atleast - the AF speaks for that too). As to raising with draws... well, on this A high board he can't have a combodraw! (such as overs+fd or fd+straightdraw). So what do we narrow it down to? That you're beat. I'd just fold flop.... even though it sucks.

      Calling flop folding turn is an option but I don't really like it because he's like 100% betting turn anyway.

      okey if i was on his position i would 3bet most of the AT+ hands and also PPs. so i excluded this hands from his range, then i was left without any idea what is his range and ofcourse pushed [tilty me]. ofcourse he showed 44.

      I still dont get it how you came to the conclusion he is holding better hand. Every poker movie i have watched [here and cr] TAG players are 95% 3betting pps from sb. What are the ranges for a nitty and loose tag player in such or similar spots. From ranges i mean - 3bet and sb/bb calling ranges. I am with nitty tag stats 14/11 so people should be more cautious with me i guess

      It would be nice to see what his 3-bet % is.
      I think he should likely 3-bet with 99 a lot of times and that leaves 44 or A9, A4, which beat you.
      Consider that he is representing small range and he could do that sometimes with draw, I think 3-bet/getting all-in is fine
      Although if you think that eh would never raise on the draw, then b/f flop is better.
