Unless you have multiple complete calling stations at your table, doing this drops your value that you're getting for AA. If you just make standard raises, you will still get those fish to call and possibly put more money in the pot once they carry on the hand. Open shoving AA is basically a cowards way to play it. I've seen people on here say that they do it because they don't want some fish to call and then out flop them... I won't even go into how stupid that statement is, but the fact is you need to bet to get value, and open shoving AA does not get any value.
