re: Poker & $10 NLHE 6-max: How do you play Aces?
So wait, you 4-betted pre-flop, villain calls, you have $5.25 left for your chipstack while the pot size is 3.65. Go all-in on the flop. Only hand that can beat you at this point is QT(very unlikely), pocket 9s, and pocket Jacks, so be it and unlucky you face cooler if they have it, can't do anything about that. I doubt that he has Kings. Anyways, I think pre-flop was played very weak. Should've 2-betted 3-4x the blind, and then when reraised, you can 4-bet it higher to like $2.5. At that point, you're committed and have already gotten maximum value out of your Aces during pre-flop.

^^ completely. Starting this year, I always buy-in for 100bb, never less. Only problem with me is, I don't auto-top-up because I like to top it up manually myself to see how much I've lost before refilling. Many good cash game CCers recommend to auto-topoff. Any good reason for this?
