      Hi,


      Well a 12 hands sample usually doesn't allow you to conclude much of anything about a player. While it is usually enough to conclude somebody is probably a fish when he shows something like 100/90 or 60/0, an okay mix of vpip/pfr like 58/25 could just be variance and he could be playing any style. You usually need to back it up with some direct reads on how he's been playing the hands he entered.

      If it's his first min3bet it doesn't look that good unless he's been overall very splashy, it's certainly possible he just happens to have AA. If you do believe he's out of line enough for you to call preflop, then you're probably better off just check/calling down instead of shoving the flop. He could be bluffing and if he is, he'll fold to the raise. If he's not don't worry, he'll shove the turn anyway most of the time. If he doesn't, you can always jam the river into him. Your hand isn't afraid of much, I think it's good enough to just let him do the betting in case he's on pure air.


      Hope it helps.
