Default Party 55 AA - what to do

This comes up a fair bit. AA level 1, a limper or 2, you raise to 95 get one caller behind.

On the flop you cbet 100, he min raises to 200. You both have say 800 chips left, what's your plan for the rest of the hand?

I play at the 22's and this is an auto shove right back in his face. I'm pretty sure most of the really good players who play higher stakes than me would say this is pretty standard even at the 55's.

FPS is my name so I call the flop raise and attempt to look weak. Being oop I checkpush the turn.

Yourself?

I ask the dealer to at least show me the flop.

Ok say flop is some random crap, say J63.

I have mostly been shoving here and usually villain folds which leads me to think there has to be a better way.

There's not much else you can do. If he has top pair or better he will often call your push, if he has some kind of garbage he won't. But what other options do you have? Checking or smooth calling doesn't necessarily mean you'll make more chips later.

If the flop comes exactly J63 or something else innocuous I might go for a checkraise on the turn if he minraises me on the flop. But if people aren't calling your pushes a good portion of the time you're not playing the same $55s that I am.

call after a small/medium (not long!) pause.

turn: check and all-in if there's a bet

river: All-in whatever.

This is really board dependent, and often a cheap shot at a free river. Making a "FPS" flop call is fine, but don't discount charging the turn on a draw board, since planning to C/R all-in will often be met with a check behind or a tiny donkbet which leaves you in an awkward spot.
