This is a discussion on $200 NLHE Full Ring: AA in bb full of limpers, only 1 caller until River within the online poker forums, in the Cash Game Hand Analysis section; Table Live_Poker - $1/$2 - No Limit Holdem
Seat 1: Hipster loose ($450)
Seat 2: Hero ($160)
Seat 3: Seat 3 ($225)
Seat 4: Villain 1 ($500)
Seat 5: LAG1
How could I have played this hand differently? The villain here was pretty loose and limped a lot, and pretty much called a bunch of raises pre-flop after my stay at this table. Afterwards my range of him was pretty wide, unfortunately I got this hand pretty early in my session here. The only thing that was possibly a reason everyone folded was that this was my hand within 10 hands of sitting at this table, so no one knew anything about me.
Villain 1 shows [3s 5s]
Hero wins the pot ($82)

sizings are pretty bad on all streets
there are 4 limpers & you raise only 4BB. You have to raise bigger. like 8BB or something like that.
And on flop you bet like 1/5th which should be >30/40%.
And keep betting turn & jam river considering the pot size
if you play your nutted hands like this how are you playing your mediocre hands??
Go for max value whenever possible

Definitely raise larger pre flop. AA you want to get this heads up. Make it something ridiculous like 20$.
Not sure how much the pot is on subsequent streets but the sizing looks a little small.
I'm not sure why you are checking the turn for? You have top set!

with that many in the pot and betting that low pre, post and checking down, you got pretty lucky.
your initial bet should have been along the lines of 12-20 and your continuation bet should have been a much higher proportion of the pot. in order to drive out middling holdings.
