In general people who play live poker, alot of the non regs have a terrible preflop game, most can play postflop but dont get too tricky. In the hour of play was villain tight preflop? had he shown down any gargbage hands?
Villains range 6x, 77-99, 76o, 89o, any two spades, or air MOST of the time. Occasionally he will show up with 66, 5x and 55 (almost never he wouldnt raise this flop with 55 ). The size of that raise seems like a feeler bet.
This is all read dependant, i like raising here too $175 though probarbly calling a shove. Most people live dont mind shoving with two overcards and 4 too a flush.
Where I play at if he is even a semi half decent regular, he'd most likely never stack off against a re-raise from aces without the goods. I'm going to assume his check-raising range is something like all 5x, some flush/straight draws, some 6x, 77-JJ. Again, i'm assuming he doesn't have QQ or KK because both those hands would make a decent 3-bet PF.
So another bet put in by AA here would probably fold out a 6, some of his pocket pairs and would get snapped up by 5x, and race against a FD.
Generally a re-raise from AA here would only get called/shoved on by better, sometimes a big draw, but not a lot.
But yea, if his a total hack, then his range could be a lot wider and theres no way to fold to his raise anyways. Very "read" dependent.
