      Hello Yordi85,

      I wouldn't really shove directly in there, rather if you want to raise then I would do a normal raise. Although I guess you can even consider just Calling while he will anyways have hard time Calling with a lot worse.

      Best regards.

      DID he raised every pot preflop?
      Because if he did, a shove like yours is good but only if you knew he raised a lot, if not and you saw him the first time min raise a shove with at least KJ or better like sets

      Guess basically he didn't have any reads and that's why he didn't write them. And could you explain why the shove is good then? Or what was your question to me or judges? :)

      But the problem is that against AA we are behind. :( Of course we get very good equity but still behind. And as well even if he has any kind of weaker hand, he wont Call with it, like TT/QQ/Jx/maybe even weaker Kx or whatsoever while he may still Call us with them if we do a normal raise. And as well if we do hit we can extract value from him. :)

      There is no perfect way to play poker you play based on information perfect or imperfect, in this case he could win a small pot if he shoves and he has like you say a small pair , if he does not see that min raise from the blind a bit tricky like he really played it, then he should be my guest and play like you said
