      I seem to have hard time facing loose agros... Dunno why I really called on flop... I am behind sets, two pairs, AQ+, plus possibility of fd completing on turn. Just fold flop?

      If you plan on folding on a blank turn for a total of 65bb it's a lot better to fold the flop yes. That said your opponent looks very loose and aggressive, it's certainly possible if he has a bunch of draws as well as worse top pairs that he's just playing fast for whatever reason. When facing this type of opponent you have to draw a line somewhere in absolute hand strength, because if you keep folding they will keep abusing you.

      I personally wouldn't be looking to fold TPGK at any point barring some better read along of the lines of "i've seen him call down with top pairs and also with draws before", so I'm shoving the flop for value.

      Hope it helps.
