Hi Nocco,

I would call here every time without reads... the guy isn't playing a full stack as you noted which indicates he's probably a bad player, and he's not likely to take this action with 2 pair+. It's possible of course, but the guy will often show up with a worse 1 pair hand, a draw, or sometimes even a weird bluff. With an spr of 6 vs a bad player, I'm committing on this board texture for sure with AA, and his action doesn't change that for me. It actually makes me think it's even more profitable, since the range of hands beating me right now I don't think are playing the flop like this too often.
