      Here's another hand I misplayed with the two black aces...

      The table was being very aggressive towards limpers, so I decided to go for a limp-raise. When the BB repoped it, I know I'm going to have no trouble getting heads up action, so I clickraised.

      On the flop, I thought about working his stack in in two moves rather than one, but when he shoved I thought that he either had AK or KK, with the edge to KK, since my preflop play so clearly represented aces. I actually wanted to throw the hand away there, but since I was beating some of the hands he might shove there (AK), I decided to call the rest.

      Am I overthinking in spots like this? Just reraise pre to about 11 then shove the flop?
