Okay, I would like to try to answer your question.
You played it correctly. Magnum Aces and Double Suited Aces are the strongest of aces and any AAXX is always the nuts - preflop.
Now, that being said, you asked if you should always bet the pot. Not necessarily. Reason being is a good PLO player will put you on Aces and can then sit back (especially if he has position on you) and simply cherry pick flops.
The hand I just read ... you have a single suited AAXX hand and limpers in front of you (meaning you have position on them) and you raised pot (like you should have) 3 folds you said i think u said a call and then the short stack shoved (which is a dream scenario for you...because now you can RR (which you did $11 ish I think you said) and any time you can get the majority of your stack in w/ AAXX you should)
Forget what the rest of hand was but ... what you don't want to do is have AAXX not suited all rainbow and your XX cards be shitty (like 39 or 72) and then 3 bet and have everyone call because the 3 bet was like .75 cents or something. Then you have a multi way pot with your having what we call BAD ACES (not even single suited and worthless side cards) ... and now in a multiway if u hit top set you are very strong but if not you don't really know how to play it sometimes and get caught up in a big pot or land at showdown with others with just a pair of aces (which rarely wins at showdown in a multi way)
I hope this helps a little and if not ...it helped me by commenting.

Is it proper to 3x + 1BB for every limper with AAxx?
Also is it correct to get it all-in preflop in almost all situations?
Here is the hand:
4 limpers hop in the pot
I raise to $0.70 with
3 fold, 1 call, a short stack with $2.72 shoves
Another person calls
I raise $11.83 for nearly all my chips (I have $1.55 left)
Both the other people fold
Was my raise size ridiculous or should I pretty much always be willing to get it in with AAxx preflop even if the others are likely to fold?
