      Hi all

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

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

      Known players:
      BB:
      $0.79
      UTG2:
      $5.13
      MP1:
      $1.99
      MP2:
      $0.64
      MP3:
      $2.30
      CO(Hero):
      $2.55
      BU:
      $2.00
      SB:
      $0.82


      Preflop: Hero is CO with A, A.
      UTG2 folds, MP1 raises to $0.06, MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0.06, Hero raises to $2.55(All-In), 3 folds, MP1 calls $1.93(All-In), MP3 folds.

      With AA, I desperately want to put all my money in the middle preflop. So if there's one re-raise and a call before me, or even better one raise and a re-raise before me, I just straight away shove all in, rather than do the standard 4X re-raise. Is this beneficial?

      If only 1 raise before me, I do the normal 4X re-raise, or if no one raised before me, I do the standard 4X raise + 1BB for every limper.

      Or would you recommend I always stick to the 4X re-raise, I feel that at NL2 people are loose enough to call me most of the time.

      Flop: ($4.63) 4, 4, 6 (3 players)


      Turn: ($4.63) A (3 players)


      River: ($4.63) 9 (3 players)


      Final Pot: $4.63.

      Thanks for advice, opponent had KK.

      once you shove it is very hard worse hands than KK/QQ call your shove, so I thin better option is just to 3-bet to 0.3-0.4 and go for there.
      This way they can call with worse hands and can make mistake postflops by getting all-in with worse hands than yours.
