      Should i have limped on the floop too, just to get more money in pot ? Or would it be too risky ?

      I think you want play your AA heads up with someone ,not in multiway pot.Think what if one of them would hit set or better on flop.You can loose your aces when you have one call ,but risk increase when you have several callers.
      Stick to standard play and raise.You can start mix when will play NL 500. :D

      Never slowplay AA on the micro and low limits, since your opponents to loose-passive to try to check-raise preflop. And AA or any other high pocket pair loses Equity in multiway pots with every additional opponent. Play them straight forward, especially on the microlimits.
