      If it weren't for his very high AF i'd say most 17/13 donking full pot there have either a set or sometimes 76s, a set being more likely since there are 6 combos of 55/88 out there against 4 of 76s, and most tags are a lot more likely to call your raise with a pocket pair than with 76s being out of position. I'd even expect them not to pot it with 76s and probably bet smaller too with some kind of Kx. Might not even be worth calling the flop.

      I'd still call once since he looks very aggressive and could possibly be (semi-)bluffing, excepting him to calm down on the turn some and maybe continue to bluff some too. I'd likely still fold on the turn most of the time, but depending on his bet sizing/timing i might just decide he's bluffing and call down.

      Hope it helps.
