Also, raising means we could be playing for a very large pot, and i'm not sure we want to do that with TPTK.
also with those stats he's looking very fishy and with a PFR of 2 (even after that many hands) almost nothing except maybe AA is out of his range.
I'd just call and let him keep firing which he likely will do with ALL sorts of inferior hands.
Raising this flop basically encourages a fish to play more correctly instead of less and we don't want that. If we get all the money in we've built a huge pot with one pair and even many fish (esp with those stats) aren't going to get involved in such a huge pot without 2 pair+.
the exception of course are the fish who are bad enough to stack off KK on an A high board or any top pair (A9 here for example) or if they are really REALLY bad... even 2nd pair sometimes (QK/QJ) or something like 88... but we have no reason to believe this guy falls into that category yet.
