      Yes, basic SSS says that you re-raise any with AA. Your re-raise is calculated as original raise x3 + original raise x1 for every limper/caller. In addition, anytime your raise is more than half-stack, you push all-in. Correct raise amount would be calculated: .35 x3 + .35 x2 = 1.75

      Even IF MP1 raises and it gets folded to you .35 x3 = 1.05 This amount is still more than half your stack, so you are pushing your aces pre-flop in any case. Keep in mind that anytime you have AA you want to get all your money accross the line at the first good oppotunity. In this case there is already dead money in the pot pre-flop (if they all fold you win 1.10 puts you at 26 BB you can leave the table a winner and nobody saw your cards), so you want that money without letting them all draw on thier hands (your all-in preflop gives them bad odds to call and only fish and donks come for the ride) AA is very good against 1-2 villians but loses equity fast after that. (suffered a blow against 64o just the other day)
