Default $22: How do you handle this AA hand?

A few hands in, CO seems like kinda of a donk, playing lots of hands pretty badly. How do you guys play this hand? I'm guessing I should push or reraise the flop, but I'm not really sure how to handle it.


Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t15 (9 handed) converter

MP3 (t630)
CO (t1335)
Button (t570)
SB (t755)
BB (t800)
Hero (t1490)
UTG+1 (t875)
MP1 (t770)
MP2 (t775)

Preflop: Hero is UTG with A[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], A[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img].
<font color="#CC3333">Hero raises to t45</font>, <font color="#666666">4 folds</font>, CO calls t45, <font color="#666666">2 folds</font>, BB calls t30.

Flop: (t142.50) T[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], T[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img], 9[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(3 players)</font>
BB checks, <font color="#CC3333">Hero bets t75</font>, <font color="#CC3333">CO raises to t275</font>, BB folds, Hero calls t200.

Turn: (t692.50) 4[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
<font color="#CC3333">Hero bets t200</font>, CO raises all-in, Hero folds.

Final Pot: t892.50

CO's raise on this flop is a little suspect. Isn't it? With position, does he not just as often cold-call the 1/2 lead on this flop with a T? Had you led more (which I'm not saying necessarily you should have), the raise might be more typical - as with a call, you'd be less inclined to continue on the turn (with a whiffed AK say). Your weaker lead on the turn would certainly get the 9 to push it here.

There are just too many hands that like this flop and your 1/2 lead to do this -- outside of a T. I'm going broke on this flop.

Agreed your good way too often to fold this flop. You may have just folded to a poorly played QQ or JJ

Personally I've had a lot more success lately adopting the limp/reraise AA utg play. I hate having to play flops like this.

But I'm hesitant to give him credit for tens, because that seems like a hand any sane person would want to slowplay on this almost drawless board. I'd probably go broke here and just shove over his flop raise. I think he has a pair of nines or like somebody else said, a poorly played JJ.
