[NL2] AA in a multiway pot

      Hi all,

      I had AA UTG and got 3 callers from a 3BB raise. Flop comes :Qh: :8c: :9d: and I bet just under pot size to try to isolate the hand. Im thinking here that any Q will call along with some J's, 10's and maybe some mid or low pairs. One player folds and two call. The turn comes :9s: . I make another (smaller) bet just under 1/2 the pot, which I now think was quite small but in retrospect saved me some money, as a bigger bet still wouldn't have earnt me any additional folds. River comes a :Td: making the board very draw heavy. I make a small bet to try and get a cheap showdown but see a raise from MP+2 and fold the aces.

      I feel that I played this hand very badly. I didn't pay much attention to my opponents stats and made some very poor betting mistakes on the turn and river. I'll let you all see the showdown result for yourself. Can anybody offer some suggestions/advice on how I could have played this hand better?
