I will give more detailed player reads as the hand develops but table is 9 handed and here is a general idea of stack sizes.
My standard opening is 20 or 25 and if the table is really nitty 15. Table is not 3-bet happy (standard live game).
I am known as a big winner in the game and a solid player.
SB (500) : Asian player, seems to be a little fishy and nittish
BB (500) : Super Nit
UTG (1,500) : Hero
UTG + 1 (800) : Old Man Coffee
MP1 (500) : Rich gambler who understands the game
MP2 (450) : Younger black guy who is pretty LAG but can thin value bet
HJ (500) : LAGtard who I have a ton of history with
CO (2,500) : Mid 30's player who is competent but not very good
BTN (500): Older Loose Passive Player
Hero is dealt A

Hero raises to 20
The game I play in tends to have a home gameish feel to it since the player pool is small so I tend to be pretty cordial when the action is closed. The dealer announces "7 handed to the flop" and I say "Nice hand everybody" which gets a good laugh.
Flop is A
SB bets 5
Okay so here is where I think the hand actually gets interesting and I kind of hurried it to here. I treated the min bet as a check and added it to the PF pot size and bet ~1/2 pot planning to bet/fold.
Hero raises to 80
Turn is 8
Pot is 380
Hero has 1400 behind
MP2 has 350 behind
CO has me covered
MP2 - Random player in town for a conference. Earlier cold called a LP raise from the blinds from me with QJos then ch/called a T9xr flop/ x turn then led out 125 into 250 on the river and I called with KTos AMHIG. He is fairly stabby and can thin value bet and I'm pretty confident he is raising the flop with any set/two pair/big combo draw so his range here is weak aces/rag FD's/maybe 45.
CO - An all around kind of fishy player but not "terrible". He plays a lot of hands and currently has god mode engaged and has been running amazing the past several weeks which I think has increased his ego and his willingness to play back at me. Earlier he cold called a PFR from the blinds with AA with 60xbb vs my LP opening when I had QJos and ch/jammed a QQx flop. His range is again weak aces/FD's/maybe 45 and sometimes he will show up with 2 pair or sets. However, I stacked him like two weeks ago when deep when he got tricky with a set on a wet board and I turned the nut straight so I think he is going to try to play straight forward here.
The real question here is one of stack to pot ratio with how much both villains have behind and what is the best way to extract maximum value. I am fairly confident that if I check MP2 will bet with a weaker ace.
