I don't love AA with this board. Villain's not necessarily only on a fd, range needs to include the two pair and made straight/sd's as well. Against that range Hero's only 41%.
The problem is getting to SD - if Villain's aggressive, he's going to be able to push me off this hand pretty easily on the turn, in which case I ought to fold right now. Re-raising the flop (2.5x to 3x the min-raise) is an option, but I'll have to fold to a shove I think... but the re-raise may be a cheaper way to get to SD or to a fold then calling all the way...
Not sure I like the re-raise, but I think I like it better than the call - what do you think? Since I don't love AA with the min-raise on this flop, I'm not sure I like calling better than folding, TBH. Yuck - three lousy options...
P.S. In the heat of the moment, I lose a lot of money in this situation because I DO fall in love with my AA in spite of the board and Villain's actions... Easy for me to rationalize when I'm not at the table
