Aces Misplayed NL5

NL5 9Handed
SB: $2.45
UTG: $8.73
LJ: $4.65
Button (Me): $4.93 AA

UTG was sitting on about $12 and kept overplaying TP weak kicker, second pair hands. He was down to $7 at one point then worked it up a little.

UTG limps, LJ limps, I raise on the button w/ Aces to .25, SB calls .23, UTG calls .20, LJ calls .20

FLOP ($1.00) T45
UTG leads out for .20, LJ folds
really strange lead but I usually anticipate being ahead of a guy that will take a Ten wayy too far.
I raise to .80 to ensure this hand continues heads up
SB folds, UTG raises to 2.20

This is where the hand gets a little weird to me. I know that I block top pair top kicker but he can still do this with some weird top pair. My only problem is that having the A and the action prevents him from really having too many bluffs. So if I continue I'm mostly relying on him overplaying some hand like AT or JJ, and obviously I lose to all sets.

I feel like someone could argue for all 3 options here so I'm a bit lost.

Re: Aces Misplayed NL5

SPR is 4.5 so I think it's not an auto-stack off with your overpair. Villain's tiny bet to induce so he can subsequently 3bet line is quite strong. Your Ace of diamonds blocks a lot of obvious flush draws. 67 or 32 of diamonds might take this line but so also may 1010, 44, 55 and 45 and there a lot more combos of those then there are of the draws(18). He might take this line with the open ended straight draw which would add in another 6 combos and maybe even Kx suited but that would be really aggressive. This is a shove/fold spot and it's probably a fold with your one pair hand.

Re: Aces Misplayed NL5

If he's kept over-playing TP weaker kicker and second pair hands before, it seems like an obvious shove spot to me.

Raise on the flop should be bigger btw.

Re: Aces Misplayed NL5

Yeah that's fair enough too. I guess I interpreted that over-limping remark as meaning that villain would call three streets or bet three streets with it as opposed to limp-3betting as in this hand.
