      Villains stats:

      VPIP/PFR: 37/16
      AF: 5.8
      3bet: 12.2 %
      AF%_R: 58%

      Now, I think, I would call him down.
      As he is so aggressive, he has enough AQ and AJ hands there.

      Against a good TAG - as played is OK. Is it?

      I would put the money on the flop.
      IP he wouldn't raise with 22,88.
      He looks aggresive so I think he might raise on the flop with any Ax.
      If he has A2,A8 that's a cooler.

      I would either b/c flop and c/rai turn or take b/f line on the flop
      AKs just seems too strong to fold it against that player, so I´d prefer playing it fast
      You can also take c/c line, but then I think you have to call river shove. Why turn shove is good that he would often check back his bluffs/draws on the river and won´t 3-barrel bluff there
