      how could i have played this better?

      the guy had raised me before in pots so i figured he was raising quite light, when he raised, i figured hands that he could be playing in this way include
      JK+, QQ+(he could be raising QQ just to see where he was at) 88, 33 against this range im a 68% favorite, so i figured that my aa were worth going all in with.

      Hard to say without a better read on him, your line probably isn't optimal unless:

      - he never bluffs in that spot


      - his value-raising range is composed solely of hands that either call off your shove or fold but wouldn't have put any more money in the pot unless they improved to beat you anyway.

      Otherwise since the board is really dry, giving him another shot at valuebetting worse / bluffing will likely yield more value and slowly commit him with worse hands that might be scared off by your shove.

      Hope it helps.
