      Hi.

      If the pairing card was another card besides the Ace, I think a shove is probably good. I would like to point out a few things here

      1) The pot bet on the River - I think that with a weaker flush like Q or T, he should not be betting so large

      2) When the Ace is paired, he can have so many boats. Assuming this guy is really loose preflop, he can have ...

      A2 (6 combos)
      AJ (6 combos)
      A5 (6 combos)
      22 (3 combos)
      That's a total of 21 value combos.

      Are we sure we can beat more than 21 combos of worse hands? I doubt it. I think you should call here.
