    Well, I thought this guy was bad. If I thought he was good your line would be better. And bad players only know how to play AA preflop. They are often lost when it comes to playing them post flop. Also, if I out play weak tight to fold to aces and stack queens one out of a 1000 times that goes into the EV of the call.

    Certainly the worse a player plays, the more you can play against him, but I can't think of any opponent I'd like to give AA to and play against him when he has already made it 125 of my 600. If I can play for 25, and if I can have 6♠5♠ against him than rather than KK, cool. But someone has to be really, really bad postflop to be profitable against when you assume his most likely hand is AA.

    Another way to think of it... is this guy the biggest loser in your game/casino? If so, go after him. But if he is close to a breakeven player, then there is a lot less reason to want to be involved here.

    If he has AA most of the time, then it's a fold, sure. But I don't think one can make that assumption safely. Against a range of AA/KK/QQ, a call is plus EV if one thinks that you are better post flop then him, even accounting for positional disadvantage. If you don't think that, jam or fold. If I didn't think I was a (or would become) better post-flop player than 90 percent of the people in my player pool, I wouldn't play in that pool.
