      So, the villain min-raises form MP2 20c (2BB), and it's folded round to me.
      Having a pair of pocket AA there's nothing else for me to do than raise. How much should I raise?

      I considered the min-raise as two limpers and raise 6BB... the villain calls =) is looking good.

      The flop feels soft, and having overpair I bet about 2/3 of the pot and the villain calls. Should I've bet more aggressively? Do I want him to follow me?

      Should I have changed anything in my play? Before and on the flop?

      The Turn brings in a blank... I try a check/raise...
      I check, villain bets less than 1/2pot, and I raise ... (should have gone all-in here but I didn't notice that I was leaving back only $9cent ).. and the villain re-raises!

      I'm confused... what haven't I notice in the way the hand played? Am I playing wrong or good?

      Hi,

      With a doubled stack there is nothing wrong to raise to 80cents preflop
      On the Flop I would make a $1 cBet as played with a shove on this 9

      Why are you going for a check/raise? Do you know the advantages/disadvantages of this line?

      I would go straight for value and go all-in for $2.4 instead
