      Pre-flop, I would squeeze bigger. $0.75, I would most likely be flat calling, but if he is a nit that folds alot to 3bets, and MP folds or calls too many 3bets, I think its ok.

      On the flop, I guess i would just flat call, He doesn't have any bluffs in his range, but we might scare away weaker Aces if we re-raise, and we don't need to protect from anything.

      Then on the turn, he will find it hard getting away with Ax since his stack/pot ratio is so big.

      Hello durinko,

      No need to shove the flop. :D Just call and keep his range wide. ;) But otherwise nice hand!

      Best Regards.
