Default Aces up OOP what do you do here?

I play mostly .25/.50 5CD and these hands alway seem to give me trouble for some reason.

I am UTG with Ah As 3h 3d 9c and raise to $2. CO repops to $5 , he's been pretty active since he sat down about 50 or so hands ago.Everyone else at the table folds around to me. I'd guess my question here is really what is the right play?

Pretty active isn't enough information. Call, draw 1, check to him post draw. It's hard to call a pot bet from a 1cd without knowing he's been reraising draws, or he's value betting worse 2 pairs. It really depends on your read.

Your opponent is putting in $5 to win $2.75, so technically
since somebody (button or blinds too) needs to defend this
pot AT LEAST about 35.5% of the time (2.75/(5+2.75)), you
probably need to call here since it's likely AA33 is about
in the top 1/3 of your range. In reality, you may have to
defend about 40% of the time in case your opponent is
semibluffing. If AA33 is not in the top 40% of your range
when you open for $2, folding is normal (maybe you only
open for 4xBB with medium two pairs or better).

If you know your opponent's range in this spot, you simply
need some tiny chance that your hand is best before the
draw, or your opponent is capable of paying you off if you
checkraise on the end.

ya too much hand to fold, if he's shown the slightest signs of LAG-ness. Call and try for cheap showdown.

But remember that when he has only 2pr himself, he mostly checks behind. Meaning when he bets, its disproportionately his trips. Calling still is reasonable depending on what price he lays you, and how you feel about his ranges to conti-bet on. But i'm definitely just hoping him to check behind me and pot slides my way.

Its been a while since I made the OP, but more than likely I raise w/ 2pair that are QQ+ and most three of a kind.
