      Hi,

      I think preflop is fine. Shoving or making a standard 3bet shouldn't make a huge difference since the money will most prob be going in in either case. Maybe shoving slightly better if you expect him to just call a lot.

      I would shove flop. What you don't want to be doing is cbet/folding given stack sizes and pot odds.

      I agree overall. That said, against some very loose aggro players, you might sometimes be better off making a small c-bet and calling a shove for value with AK-high, or even check to let them shove overcards and crap and then call it off, again for value.


      Hope it helps.
