      I decided not to raise because I didn't want to overplay it and turn my AA into a bluff, against this player I isolate myself against sets, or all-ins from even AQ that I don't want to see right away because he plays the same way with sets.
      Also I was OOP against 2 other players, decided to go for way ahead/way behind and see what happens.
      Folded the river for obvious queen.

      Hello AtrociousNightmare,

      Instead most likely I'd just raise the flop vs such a weak donk. But neither ain't wrong if you take way ahead/behind, then I like your play.

      Best Regards.

      How much would you raise? Bet pot for protection vs 2 players?
      What if I raise and he goes all-in (on flop)?

      I would most likely raise it to like $0,80 and I am not planning to go broke. We are deep and it's very often going to be a trap so which means we Raise/Fold it.
