      CO is 31/23/3B=7.1/AF=4.8 (63 hands)

      Obviously this isn't a difficult decision to get the stack in, but could there be an argument that against this aggressive player that it's better to call the flop min-raise and let him take control of the hand?

      Or was my line okay here to get it in as early as possible?

      When I bet the flop, I had a feeling he would c/r because he usually bets. I wasn't sure if he's trapping with AA, but thought 'meh if has AA, congratulations'.... ;)

      Hello philhellmutt,

      Definitely fine to go broke on flop if he wants that. :) But it's possible as well to just Call while we even have the position. If he wants to go broke then he is very likely going to continue anyways. Plus the board is pretty dry.

      Best regards.
