Overplaying the pocket rockets pre flop?
I have a sanerio, you are delt pocket AA, and everyone at the table folds but one very aggresive player, even though its impossible to know what he has or what he will do lets say for this example that he will defintly have a premium/broadway hand, and he will defintly call any raise you make, including all in, but after the flop he could do anything he likes, he is an loose aggressive player but good. as we know we have only one oppnent, we are a garrenteed favorite at this time (or at least tied if he has the other AA). Is it always the right move to go all in? because I have noticed sometimes it seems better to make a very large raise, and see the flop to make sure hes not lucking out. remeber for this example this player is loose aggresive, but skilled and in this example we have a read he has broadway or PP. also take into account I am in position, so i get to see his play before I act, (if u can let me know what you think if I was out of position for this example, but i am mainly intersted if I have position because I am using my reads, not that you cant get reads out of position though...)
I Feel possibly my post flop play can aquire more money long term by cutting losses, when he flops lucky, but is this acctualy feasible? Or is it immposible to get more postive EV even with post flop play and best to shove at the start. I feel I also can get the rest of their money in the pot anyway postflop because they are so loose and commited to the pot so it worth it to see the flop to make sure I am not beat because they will most likely call my raises again anyway. while its always postive EV i feel like sometimes when I put maybe 50-70 percent of my stack in at pre flop i reduce my losses more than i win if I was to just shove all pre flop, I would defintly love statistical/math type answers as its easier for me to understand but any are appreciated as I cant find a way to figure this out semi stististicly myself.. also take for this example I am a very strong post flop player.
I have played hands very much like this and I think not pushing all in at the start has saved me more than I made shoving...
