5/10 NLHE Full Ring: Could I have extracted more value out of these Pocket Ace's?
So it was my second Pocket Ace for the night, my first being cracked to 2-pair with a caller (K-Q off suit). However, I have been practicing my value betting lately and want to know if I could have played this hand better against this opponent.
The villain in question has demonstration aggressive behavior if he picks up that his opponent heads-up (or multi opponents) are weak, EVEN IF he has nothing. I've seen him throw tons of money into previous pots with Ace high hoping to push his opponent out. So here we go...
I'm on the button with $6.40 and dealt pocket ace's. In my cutoff is the villain with $3.44.

Obviously I won, and my strategy worked a little bit to milk some, but overall could I have played it better? Could I have extracted more or induce an all-in?
I'm putting the villain on maybe KJ, small pocket pair, or maybe pocket Jacks, however with this particular player I can't give him much of a range because if he had a King, Ace, pocket Q's J's 10's or 9's he would have showdowned with me I believe.
