      It's a 2-bet so a simple raise on the flop, and given that guy's aggression so far i don't mind calling it and reevaluating the turn.

      On the turn knowing how he plays his flushdraws and his big Ax would help, as always sets are hard to come by. He probably raises big Ax preflop to begin with and it's really not out of the question that he plays a flushdraw with a raise given how aggro he is.

      Even tho it hurts when you hit two pairs i think you can either c/c a smallish bet and c/f the river or c/f the turn right away unless you put stuff like AJ+ with a club kicker in his range for doing that, which is possible but imo unlikely i think he'd raise those preflop.

      Hope it helps.
