Good question. It depends on how aggro you are but someone who raises too much pf (say 90%) is a prime candidate for a 3 bet pf or a check raise on the flop.
Against someone who comes out betting on every street almost every hand it's usually worth calling down very light if you have some sort of hand.
Basically you let villain's aggressiveness work against him when you have a hand and raise more of your draws/ air against their weaker range when you don't.
You have to be prepared to call down with marginal holdings if villain seems to always be raising you out of the pot. It's tough to do but if you don't you'll get run over. That's why all the top HU players are aggressive because it hard to play against.
Playing the HUSNG's you'll notice that as you move up from the 5/10/20s to the 50's and 100's that very few open limpers play at the higher stakes. Almost everyone is very aggressive. They bluff more and pick off bluffs better. Also you'll run into a few players that play them all day and make decent $ out of it with sharkscope
graphs that just go up at a nice angle. Good practice to improve your game but not usually good for your bankroll.
