With AA you want other players with good hands, aces with good kickers and high pocket pairs to call but at the same time you can't allow the entire table to call you.  If you move all in other people might just fold and you won't profit.  If people in front of you are raising, then you have an idea situation

all in on bullets is about your only move, especially with lots of ppl in the pot, bullets lose lots because there only a pair.. j 9 suited will actually win more then bullets

I like to slow play da rockets.  Then I move all-in after the flop.  This works good for me.

My buddy was playing the million freeroll heat over at paradise yesterday and had AA vs KK, guy hit the K on the turn for a set. 2 Hands later he has AA again! All in, SAME GUY has JJ calls. Hits a J on the turn for the set. He was not a happy camper. We can laugh about it today but when it happene he was ready to break his room up.

really it depends on what position your in but generally when i get it I usually make a raise otherwise if you just call generally you get to many people in on the hand and there's a decent chance that someone might hit a two pair or straight or flush.  Although I don't think you should go all-in cause you don't want to waste the hand.  But a raise should do, you should still get people to call.

it really depends on the other plays at the table. if you know theyre playing style and you still thinks its a good idea to push pre-flop then by all means go for it cause you have the advantage. just dont get screwed on the river :)

I will never go all-in with AA unless I am short stacked and down to the last couple tables.  Way too much money to be made by playing them strong but not scaring everyone out.  I think the big mistake is that people will never lay them down even if they think they might be beat.  

My advice is, play them strong and extract as much money as you can but be willing to give them up if necessary.

Always bet enough to scare out limpers and such...I myself go All-in 90 % of the time...Remember this saying when it comes to AA..."Win a little, or Lose Alot"

I dunno about all-in... it eliminates your ability to get away from the flop. EG, if the flop were KKQ, I wouldn't be thrilled about AA because the people who called an all-in raise (incorrectly, granted) could well have you beat. I like to raise big to thin the pack but then play for value after the flop.

Give a nice litttle raise preflop. If you hit then slowplay it if not make a reasonable bet if you want the person to call. If he comes over the top then you need to think twice.
