      Hello. AA is never a small hand! :D

      I would bet more on the flop.. near pot. His donk bet on the turn is so weird... but if you're thinking of raising, you should really raise much more to protect your hand and give him bad odds to call. You could also take the pot control line to call or check behind from the turn onwards but it's perhaps not wise here given the drawy flop. River, I would check behind and take the free SD, because I think all worse hand's values have been extracted already.

      AA on that spot is usually nuts
      You can also raise turn 2$ and shove river for value
      You get looked up there by any Kx hand
