Probably stupid, given this is 25NL and there really is no reason to get tricky with any big hand, but what do you think?

Villain has been: 96/27/2

This should make your decision much much easier. We have a total maniac donk, and his range is any two cards. I get as much money in as soon as I can, and pre-flop is the ideal place to do it against a player like this. Trust me, tricky plays are wasted here.

Good flop, semi-shitty turn, but as played pre-flop we want to be getting as much in as possible and playing for stacks against this guy is standard.

Just dont get tricky against the donks.

Looks like he either had K-J or a flush draw on the turn, possibly A-J, or K-X. Certainly hard to find a flod here against villans range which of course could include A-5 or 5-6. It's just too hard to tell.

Against this type of player I like to push them hard when I have a big hand as early as possible, make them pay to play crap against me. I would only slow play and let villan bet when I have the near nuts, which one pair isn't. It's just too hard to put villan on a hand to know where we stand.

If villian is going to reraise our aces preflop, raise back, loose donks like this hate to be reraise and will probably shove which is what we want.

I would have popped MP again for $5 preflop. Then on the flop your C-bet would be to put MP AI. With your AA and this loose of a player you want to size your bets a bit larger with the target of getting it AI with what looks like more normal bet sizes.
