Yeah you're jamming every time. And you have blockers to AA and KK which makes it even easier to get the money in.

With the preflop raise by the opp, this has to be a shove or fold here. If the opp was a total nit, then I might fold... otherwise, I'm shoving. Most of the time you'll be in a race here, but there are chances the opp may have AQs or AJs, along with AA, KK here.

If you're going to be getting your chips in, it's also better to shove here first and put the pressure on your opponent.

The one thing that I would not do here is to call and shove the flop, as I wouldn't want the opp seeing the first 3 cards without making them pay the max to see them.
