So the only hand we might lose value from is AK but again he is going to spew a bunch and probably will spew with AK.
I'm not advocating always flatting AA from the blinds. I'm just saying that you should take into account your image, the dynamic at the table before you make your decision. People go on autopilot too much in poker and it's a problem.
You're pretty much contradiction yourself now, and twice to boot. In the OP you talk about BTN having a wide range, now you're saying it doesn't matter if he misses the flop because overpairs will call / get it in. Overpairs are a minuscule part of a wide range, and you're flatting remember?
Then you talk about people going on autopilot too much. I agree but autopilot means not adapting well to the situations that arise, and your whole strategy is about villain quitting his autopilot mode here and bluff-shoving you with T7s on an Q52r board after you check/raise. Doesn't make much sense tbh.
I like new ideas and all but you gotta be prepared to defend it with better arguments. Since this is all theories and hypothesis now, the best way to do that is to show your win rate with KK-AA when you flat call. Then I'll bow to you and you can say /thread
