      If he raises the flop you can fold I think. You're representing a big pair. If he wants to bluff here he will have to invest a lot of money while having no or little fold equity from his point of view! If it would be a bluff, well good for him but you're having a great chance gonna stack him later on.
      You could consider betting a little bit less on the flop (like $6.75 or $7) on this board. I think that will have the same results, but save you money when he raises.

      I think you made one mistake though: Showing your hand :D . I think that's really bad in this hand!

      Yes, it always does.
      TT is kinda border line. On a 7 high board Im calling him. On this board JJ would be my going broke minimum. But, he is a regular, and has nice TAGGish stats, he is aggressive and knows that your big bet on the flop means vulnerability(since you have nothing to protect from), that is a medium pocket pair or Ax. He might bluffraise a lot, and thats why against this player Im calling a shove.

      Are you sure I am showing weakness by doing this? I mean I bet the aces for the same amount here usually and I rarely c/r these situations, do I do anything wrong?

      Well your bet is kinda big. Im not saying to c/r, but normally you can bet only 1/2 pot with AA on such a good board, as you have nothing to protect against and can get it in easily with a smaller bet.
      You are certainly doing nothing wrong.But a TAGGish player can interpret it as a weakness, and this one in particular may shove with weaker hands.

      Against that opponent I´m getting stack here with TT.
      So when he min-raises flop, I´d shove.
