      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A, A.
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 calls, 4 folds, BU calls, Hero raises to $0.09, BB calls, UTG2 calls, BU calls.

      Flop: (40.00 SB)
      4, Q, 7 (4 players) Hero bets $0.25, BB folds, UTG2 folds, BU folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: 20.00 BB.

      i don't have to bet to protect my hand.
      Maybe i could have played my hand somehow different to get as much as possible money from my opponents.
      Is there any suggestion

      No way, you played it well.

      Any other way gets you less money or gets you beat.

      In your case not beat probably, unless villain somehow as low pair on that board and improves to trips or two pair, but no money.

      If no one calls that flop bet, no one will call turn bet either. And if you check it down to the river, your pot is really small and its not sure if anyone will call either.

      If another spade comes off people will fold low flushes. Would anyone have had K of spades or J of spades they might have called flop bet.

      Nice hand, well played. You could also try to Check/Raise the flop but mostly it's a better idea to bet into multiway pot than wait someone to bet.
