AA sqz pot river decision

Hi,

$1/2 table

This was the very first hand of that night, I played with V once before, I can't recall any specific reads, although if I remember correct he was bit of callhappy. We have $600 in front of us, V covers.

[PREFLOP]

UTG raises to $10, UTG+1 calls (V), MP calls, folds to me in the BB with AA , I make it $50.

UTG folds, V calls, MP folds

[FLOP ~$120]

643

I bet $75, V calls

[TURN ~$270]

2

I bet $135, V calls

[RIVER ~$540]

T

We have ~$340 behind.

At this point I was putting him mostly on FD's, but 77-TT is also definetely in his range. I doubted he would've call a shove with 77-99.

What's the correct play on the river? Shall we c/c to catch his busted FD bluffs or shall we bet something $100 to extract value from mid pockets?
Am I overthinking and this is a simple shove?

Thanks.

Very deep game for first hand of the night. Does your game always play this deep? Uncapped, I presume?

More on the flop, please. His calling twice pre very much indicates a speculative hand, so this board is nowhere near as dry as it might seem for a HU 3-bet pot. He has all the draws, draw +pair, etc. in his range. This also includes a few sets, but we're ahead of almost everything. Sure we lose 88-TT if we bet bigger, but I think that's much better than undercharging draws and having no idea where we are in the hand.

Turn is OK, but it's a bet/fold with a 4-liner to a straight out there, imo. River is a check/call for me with most Vs, as the busted draws aren't calling anything, but might bluff.

Yup, it was an uncapped game and I arrived quite late so the average stack sizes were at least at ~$500.

Thanks for the input, I also had the feeling during the hand that c/c might be the right play on the river.

Not a shove imo. I'd go for some thin value on the river given you're read of "callhappy"
Make it something like 150-175 and fold to a jam.
I would like more pre too as we're very deep and trying to build a pot
