      Hi,

      Being 158bb deep you have to remember he'll have more pairs in his range. Do you think he can call AQ, AJ on the river? Do you think you can exclude flopped sets or 2pairs? For 100bb this would be super easy bet/bet/shove but for 160 it's a bit tougher if your opponent actually adjusts his range for the stack depth. If he plays the same, you can definitely shove river for value.

      In that case, you need to work from your perceived range and your image. What this means: Do I look spewy enough to bluff my stack away here? How will my image expand/tighten his calling range?

      The next consideration is what is your actual range here? You should have an undefined 3betting range imo when you are so likely to get called, meaning you should have all types of hands, including some suited aces, some suited connectors and broadways. This doesn't mean all of them! If this is the second best hand you can have here apart from 3 AA combos? If that's the case, I really think you still have to include some AK combos (maybe all) into your river shoving range, else any Ax becomes a snap call by villain. Think of it, if you only shove AA and villain has Ax, your value range is one combo. He needs you to have 1/2 of bluff combo to snap it off, probably a bit less. This is assuming he is actually very competent but the truth will usually be he will play his hands and not look too much into your range even if he has a bit of an idea of preflop adjusting to deeper stacks.
