AA UTG after taking a kickin!  0   
Ok lets start far enough back you get a little insite to my logic.......
I'm sitting pretty im chip leader in a 9 seater SnG $50 turbo.. I have 4K+ and the next guy to me has only 2.5K there are 5 players left in and 3 of them have less than 1K.
I call an all in by some one with 900chips. i have QQ they have KK.....i loose.. OK thats fine.
Very next hand i get QQ again and onother guy who has 800 chips go's all in.... So i call again, (it was my big blind anyway so it only cost me 400chips) he turns over AA and i loose again, SO now im down to Just under 3k and all the others are gaining,
A few hands later i loose again after re-raising with Ako getting put all in by AQs and loosing to a A high flush im down to just over1k by this time im the short stack....'Doh..
The next round of blinds put me down to 500chips
I decide to push with 22 get called by the big blind and double up to 1.2K
The next hand i get 88 and push again but they all fold! Now up to 1.6k
Now under the gun get AA..... I think for a few seconds and decide to push again thinking they will think im bluffing or tilting and they all fold so im upto 2.2k but should i have just called with AA utg ?

I think you did the rifht thing rpushing your AA: first of all cause it was the 3rd push in a row, if I was an oppo i would have thuoght it was a bluff; and then cause I will never, never and never call my AA again Aww crap! only pushing to play them against one or two oppos .. not more.
I don't like limp at all.

Depends on the table. If you have some "punish the limpers" guys at the table, you can just limp, trying to trap them. But usually it is better to raise.

In this situation the push is absolutely the right thing to do. Like you say, the situation should make them beilive you've gone crazy, and if any of them would've had a descent like A10s or 88 they probably would've called. And when the blinds are that big, a steal is good to!

Good play

raise is a good option, because they might think you're on tilt they are likely to call Smile or even raise with AJ or a pair..

if its a really aggresive room and u no some1 is gonna raise behind i might call but then also if u do a call then raise it shows strenght, but if u raise then u might get rerasied wich is even better Smile

4 xxxbchxxx:
I think, it was right move. Go all-in thirth times over is suspicious and they really could think that you are tilting... I also think that thay call you with AJ+ or 66+, if you pushed in this situation. My opinion is nobody has semi or better hand so they can´t call. I think you wouldn´t earn more money, if you just limp.

It was the smartest move you could do in this situation. But probably no one of them had anything to move all in with, so you just were a little unlucky.
Anyway, good play. Thumbs Up

I love it when that happens and happily push for the third time in a row Big Smile

I understand your idea. But the correct play here maybe is going all in, because if they were thinking you are tilted, they will call you with a K high! If you just call and slow played you could be beated against two pair or other miraculous hand. In that period of the sit&go with that hand and your stack is an all in. You could raise 4 times but it is almost an all in too!

I think the best way was to raise the bet was less likelihood that people will pay, when making a call just think you had something like a pair or a project for you and you gave them opportunity to bind something

I think with a push you are more likely to get callers than with a raise.
When you just call or raise after those pushes they might think you actually want them to call this time.

Calling with AA is almost always a bad play. Just play the hand as if you would have played other, smaller hands. Callin won't take you anywhere- small pot with many players isn't definetely what you want to achieve
