Default AA hand....line to get the most chips in?

Party Sunday 100K freeroll (20K points entry). Read on UTG is fairly solid player. He steals, but it appears only in position. MP1 had just been moved to the table so no read on him. Blinds are 150/300, ~350 out of 2400 remain.

Side note: I very recently started reading the MTT tourney and already I feel like a different player. I was once a weak tight survivalist but now I'm trying to transform into an actual player who eyes the final table instead of the bubble. Thanks for the info and I hope to become an active contributor.

Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t300 (10 handed)

BB (t3502)
UTG (t15661)
UTG+1 (t2272)
UTG+2 (t6200)
MP1 (t6525)
MP2 (t9130)
MP3 (t1340)
CO (t7080)
Hero (t14687)
SB (t12570)

Preflop: Hero is Button with A[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] A[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img]
UTG raises to t900</font>, 2 folds</font>, MP1 calls t900, 3 folds</font>, Hero ??

I initially thought about pushing but that seemed like too big an overbet. Then I thought about popping it to ~2k. Figured the absolute worst thing I could do is just smooth call (well I guess the ABSOLUTE worse thing is to fold but you get the idea). Any advice/thoughts appreciated.

My thoughts.....

Calling = bad, simply because the blinds are still to act and they will be getting reasonably decent odds to call (SB can call for 750 into a 2150 pot, or about 3-1 odds, and if he doesn't, the BB gets a call for about 3.5-1 odds) - and AA does not play as well against 3-4 people as it does against 1 or 2 max. You need to pop it to at least remove SOMEONE. I'd pop it to about 2000-2500. You are giving UTG and MP1 excellent odds to call you - then you just need to win the hand [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

raising to 2k is worse than calling imho.
I would pop it to like 3.3kish and go from there

Yeah, I agree with Roman. I was going to say 3500 is the play here. Two guys in cheap versus rockets is a way to go broke.

Healthy raise like Roman said looks pretty good, try to narrow the field and hopefully someone will come over the top of you with their QQ or KK and you can stack them.
