I didn't read all the replies, but I agree with I think I have aces. You were nowhere near shove time, and you'd have gotten the same info if you'd raised 3-4bb +1 per limper.
AND THEN...fold to a rr and you still have chips.
I REALLY hope you made notes on the guy that limped w/ aces. Just in case you meet again. It's happened to me a few times, in about the exact same setup as you, where you are SO certain you can get them all to fold w/a shove, but do the math. I learned it early enough to not want to quit poker. Try a raise next time, and GL
