comment Should I go all-in with AAs in this situation?
I appreciate the feedback. However, I'm not convinced that calling is the right choice. AA is not likely to improve further so I don't see how calling helps me win the pot; any aggression on the turn forces me to fold. While I can hope my opponent is passive on the turn, how likely is that considering he's committed 20% of his stack to the hand? (not to say he's pot committed but he's clearly interested in taking it down)

I've reworded the second question to better describe my intention. I understand that I want villain to bet on the flop. I'm more curious about how much money it would take for someone to lay down that hand.

comment 1/2 NL: Call this villain's all-in with top pair, ace kicker?
I concur that a preflop re-raise, on my part, was in order. As to calling the all-in, I want to clarify that I didn't assume he was fish because he came from the online world. I observed that he was playing 3-4 hands per orbit and relying on aggressive betting in a passive environment to take down pots. Thus, I wasn't prepared to assume his raises just meant strong hands. The fact that his typical raise was $2 and K9d is what made him jump to a $13 raise indicates some over-valuing IMO. Having said that, I concur his all-in should have been a sign that he was strong.

I was on the button; I updated the question in the pre-flop section to indicate our table positions.
