      Being first to act, I wanted to show aggression all the way. I have only been on this table for a minute or two, so I'm not able to give much read on opponents other than stats above. Villain cold calling me I figured he was working a smaller Ace, but is there something else I am missing in my read?

      Nice hand, well played.

      It's 4NL... don't give your opponents too much credit. I definitely shove it in there, if the villain flopped a set... myeah, too bad :p

      Prelop and flop is ok.
      On turn imho you should play bet/fold because I see some hands that can beat you like 2p(AT,A2s,A5s),sets,you beat AQ,AJ,Ax,some draws(unlikely).Board is not very drawy so i think turn raise is serious sign (like Baluga says).To call this raise or push profitably you should have read on this opp that he can raise/push with only tpgk-tpwk. He is not extremely aggressive,AF 2.1,so this opp should raise with made hand or rarely with combo draw like gutshot+fd.
      I definitely shove it in there

      Show against certain opp is not mistake but not definitely.

      Unless you have very good read I wouldn´t bet/fold turn with tptk, shoving there is perfectly fine.
