      i think you could raised more preflop in order to get the most of your hand equity here . i realised at nl 50 that a 3 or a 4 reraise to a 1 raise gets the same callers . i think you are ahead many times in this situation and he often does this with a smaller pocket or with a 5 . it isnt neceserily for him to have boat or trips . if i call the flop i would go for a check raise on the turn because this way you get the most of the value . other line is to 4 bet flop and you will get called a lot by hands like 99 - jj maybe other smaller pairs sometimes

      Pf fine. Flop bet/re-raise 30$ or 25$. You´re ahead mostly and you want to go all-in here.

      Reraise the flop or c/r the turn. You will go broke against AA either way, but you should get value from worse pockets!

      I realized he probably had a pocket pair here, so I played WA/WB situation.

      I'm not afraid of an 8 or 55 on that flop. I'm just afraid that by playing this hand aggressively I'll make him fold smaller PP.

      I'm probably also worried about my post-flop AF... that's somewhere around 5.

      The big question is: how can we get the maximum value from pockets? This depends on your image and the tendencies of villain. If you have a very aggressive image, showed some bluffs, etc., you may reraise preflop as this is the move your opponents expect from you with a wide range of hands.
      You may consier calling and c/r the turn if your opponent is aggressive - you want to be sure that he bets the turn...
      Another line is calling the flop and donking the turn. It works against some fishes, but it is hard to balance - thats why I don't use it.
