Seeing as there has been no resolution and this is getting some attention still I'll voice in. I like the PF raise fine, that's my standard raise later in tourneys, but if you feel comfortable this early then go with it. You must feel confident in your post flop game.That's a pretty sucky flop for your hand. Your raise didn't narrow villain's range significantly, still people will call raises with Aces more than with other cards. His check doesn't tell you much because most people that hit or miss check to the raiser. You standard continuation bet, he smooths it.At this point he either has Ax where X is not a heart. A flush and he's going to let you hang yourself. One heart probably 10+ Or he floated with air to try and take it away on the turn. Once he bets out puting you all in on the turn when a relatively harmless offsuit 9 comes it's apparent he didn't flop a monster. He could still have Ax and not want to let you check for your possible free heart, he could have something like 9x where x is 10,j,q,k of hearts. Or he could be bluffing to try and push you out when the harmless turn came.Seeing as there are all of these possibilities I'm kind of lost in the hand. I tend to think this play is made more often with Ax than it is being a random float. Especially floating OOP, that's rare, even though he has "position" to fire out on the turn. I'd probably muck and give him credit for the Ax with no heart.
