Default AKs put to the decision...

Alright, I'm yet another limit player who wanted to spice it up some. First couple of orbits, no solid reads. I haven't seen anyone get out of line yet.

Ultimate Bet No-Limit Hold'em, $.25 BB (10 handed) converter

CO ($6.45)
Button ($44.50)
SB ($6.18)
BB ($6.65)
Hero ($28.50)
UTG+1 ($15)
UTG+2 ($46.50)
MP1 ($13.10)
MP2 ($24.75)
MP3 ($28.45)

Preflop: Hero is UTG with A[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img], K[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img]. UTG+1 posts a blind of $0.25.
<font color="#CC3333">Hero raises to $1.00</font>, UTG+2 calls $1.00, MP1 calls $1.00, <font color="#666666">1 fold</font>, MP3 calls $1.00, <font color="#666666">1 fold</font>, <font color="#CC3333">Button raises to $1.75</font>, <font color="#666666">1 fold</font>, BB calls $1.50, Hero calls $0.75, UTG+2 calls $0.75, MP1 calls $0.75, MP3 calls $0.75.

Question #1: Is my 3-4 x BB raise from UTG with AKs standard?
QUestion #2: In limit, we pretty much cap with AKs. After the button's re-raise, should I be pushing here? I am destroyed by AA/KK and slightly behind all other PPs. Does the chance to pick up this pot preflop outweigh me being up against AA/KK?

Flop: ($10.85) A[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], 4[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img], 5[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(6 players)</font>
BB checks, <font color="#CC3333">Hero bets $5</font>, UTG+2 calls $5, MP1 folds, MP3 folds, <font color="#CC3333">Button moves in with $42.75</font>, BB folds, Hero ...?

I didn't really want to build the pot with 5 others in, so I bet slightly less than half the pot to get a feel for the other hands. The button's all-in seemed probable with AA/AK. With two people liking their hands already, it seemed a bit premature to push with AA however, so AK felt a bit more likely. UTG+2 could have a weaker A, or perhaps 44 or 55 for a set as well. Is this a fold?

In a 25$ game I'm happy putting all my chips in on the flop w/ tptk. Lead for pot.

I think your play preflop was fine, a raise of that size is pretty standard seeing that you were under the gun.
Also in reference to question number two pushing is out of the question becasue unless he is a complete fish he has you beat, yet it is read dependant.
