      Villains is, 56/3, AF 1.6, Agg% 52 over 79 hands.

      Should I have just called his minraise or was it ok to stack off there? I really hesitated there but decided to raise and get it in, thinking he might do it with weaker flush draws and Im flipping vs better aces. On the other hand, if the flush comes on the T or R I get his stack for sure (if he has a fd), but if it doesnt I miss out on the times he'd stack off with a fd on the flop. I cant decide which is more +EV. But he probably doesnt have a flush draw if he minraises the flop, does he...although I can't really say anything with this kind of guy.

      Since you have showdown value with your pair of A-s+ you can improve on the turn and river I´d likely just b/c flop and then call him down if I don´t improve
      If you think he may c/r draws then 3-betting flop for value and stacking off is also fine
