      I would raise to $6.00 PF, the standard $4.00 + $2.00 for the limpers. I know you probably only raised that much because you didn't want them to fold while you had AA, but these players are so bad they will likely call anyway or even better, push over you. You don't want them in cheap, you also want to give them all the opportunity to make a big mistake (re-raising). After I raised to that much PF pushing the flop is really the only option. NH

      ya...haven't even noticed my PF raise amount...
      thanks a lot! I checked and re-checked this hand to see what went wrong and now I feel dumb as it's so obvious

      Hey mishuq,

      as said before, raise 6BB preflop, specially OOP. ;)

      ...then you have easy push on the flop.

      As played, there's really no other way but to push 14,5BB stack into 14BB pot. If you decide to bet you have to push and check would be highly unrecommended on such a board.
