Seems a bit greedy
Don't think its got anything to do with being greedy. I just call because that's what i would do with AA,KK even 88 or 99, so when i call i can have all these good hands, its kind of a balance thing which obviously doesnt matter at 2nl because if i ship here with AK its the only hand i ship with ( i'd call 88 and 99 planning to fold to raises off some guys, but not wanting to fold pre cause i think its such a way ahead spot of the shorties range, so shoving would suck) Shoving with AA and KK obviously sucks. And when i flat with AK here im never folding, i dont care what the flop comes down as really if i get called because the SPR will be so low and i think flatting in such whale infested games is going to even open up "regs" to shoving over with AQ sometimes or TT which wouldnt be bad 3 way where they might otherwise fold. I mean its not super important but it is when you play higher games, both are going to be really +EV i just think there is more value flatting your whole continuing range for reasons above.
basically, flatting lets me keep their ranges wider and lets them make more mistakes.
