"Your read on Player 2 is that he is a very aggressive player, probably one of the best in the world, and is capable of all sorts of things."
1. First question I'd ask myself, "would player 2 call the preflop bet with with 2s, knowing that there's still a full table to act ahead of him?" My answer would be, no-not if he's "one of the best in the world". He is not a microstake player who has the microstake thought-process (if such a concept exists).
2. "Does he have 10s"? I would say no. He pauses, gives thought before re-raising. He has an over pair (anything from jacks to kings-possibly aces as well,lol. Based on my own personal experience, playing high stake tournaments even the most aggressive, good ("probably one of the best in the world") player has yet to re-raise when he knows he has flopped the nuts on a non-drawing flop. I've never seen this done.
3. Now you have checked the turn, and villain has bet into you (exactly what you would like an aggressive player to do in this situation) ;)
