Should I played differently.

This happened last Sunday afternoon at Harrahs casino. I was in the CO. The button straddles for $6. Everyone folds. I have AA. I bet $15. Villian folds. I win $10. What if I just called villains see straddle? I'm ahead of everything he has. Could I have made more money. Yes I know that I'm giving v. a free cards, the flop, to draw out and beat me. Just wondering if a call preflop in this situation is more profitable, than a raise?

    When they always fold, you should look to increase your frequencies and make money with your none equity hands - maybe even any two cards.

    When you're lowering your price, you make your task of building the pot more difficult, and you open the door for V to out-flop you for a too good of a price.

    @John Valentine ... No

    You are constantly playing a perceived range, the whole point of opening with a range preflop is because of the possibility of you having nothing at times. The more you do this, the more your nothing helps your top of range get paid because at some point, they will try to challenge you and see if you actually have it this time.
