      I always try to get it AI with AA preflop (when given the opportunity that is). The only thing I do from time to time, in order to lure them in a 'monster' pot, is to make the 4bet smaller. In your case between $1,10 and $1,30, because that makes it easier for them to make a mistake and call, while still presenting an easy opportunity to either stack them on the flop or to both get so committed, that any turn is insta shove.
