      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):
      $25.96
      MP2:
      $10.23
      MP3:
      $10.35
      CO:
      $5.72
      BU:
      $30.34
      SB:
      $10.57


      Preflop: Hero is BB with A, A.
      MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $0.30, 3 folds, Hero raises to $1.10, MP3 raises to $3.00, Hero raises to $7.60, MP3 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.95.


      Seems to be a pretty reasonable and okayish player for NL10 - maybe even a little passive, remember one hand where he just called me down w/ 2nd pair + OE straight flush draw.

      Should I 5bet to smth like $6, maybe not to induce a shove from such a player, but perhaps more likely a flat and then stack off on any flop?

      every 5-bet size that you make looks strong to him, so I´d just shove
      If he is 4-betting for value, he´d call, if he is bluffing, he´d fold
      AA has there more equity than 66%, but also taking down 60bb pot pf without showdown is also very reasonable, so you don´t have to call pf to extract more value postflop

      I've been doing that lately hoping to make it look like I have AK when I just shove it all in instead of "extracting more".

      Because at NL10 I've noticed, when people just shove, they always have either QQ or AK, they (almost) never shove KK/AA, trying to lure you in ...
