      Against this player I like it.
      Good way to extract value from dominated aces.

      NH vs fish. Only thing that beats you is QQ/AQ and 22. rest is pure value.

      River I would push like you did, villain doesnt seem to be laying down any Ace (36% went to showdown).

      Why would raise you on AQ2 rainbow board?
      I think he has here a lot of times two pair or set.
      Anyway if you want to play for stacks then 3-bet to 12$ on the flop is better and then calling shove, but if I haven´t seen player re-raising Ax or bluff here I´d b/f.
