You got lucky that he also hit a made hand, and that's the only reason why you got max. value.
Why flatcall preflop out of position? Especially when he raised UTG (which tightens up his range, making a fold to 3bet less likely)? I think by flatting preflop you will get more into trouble than it having benifits.

I went for the Trap to let him put some money in and then hit him!

Thats exactly what Lebron said on the other thread where he was talking about how on the earth he could lost six times with a pair of aces during his two hour session.

there was no trap
he hit a monster hand , there is no way he is folding
all i could see that you were behind on the flop and got lucky
UTG raises + he has big stack , why not reraise him with AA ?

if you don't try to make the pot bigger with AA pre-flop , then which hand you do that with ?

anyway you had him preflop and you didn't raise him --> you got punished on the flop
he had you on the flop and he didn't raise you --> he got punished on the turn
conclusion always raise Big Smile

Well done man. That is the most you could get out of AA here. I especially liked the check on the turn, because even if your opponent had nothing he might have bluffed the turn trying to represent the ace.

When he called flop it's obvious he hit something at this stake (not necessarely something strong though but at this point you can assume he hit something). Most people don't float much to try to bluff later. So unlike leno1 I didn't like the check on the turn. If he has a flush draw, you're giving him a free card all he has to do is check back.

Other than that, I completly agree with BeMYATM about the flat call pre flop. It may have been good here but it really isn't a good play in the long run in my mind. What if the turn is a brick... like a jack for exemple? Blink
