I like it

The only thing I'd have done differently was to be a little more on the flop, about 1k.

You played a VERY standard value bet line with your AA, exactly as you should be doing far more often than not.

When he ships over you on the turn, obviously at that point you are not going to fold; the pot is just too big and the call is just too small.

It would have taken specific info on the villain to really vary your play in this hand.

The results bear out the fact you probably did not have any real reason to vary your play at all, as the villain was willing to get all his chips in on a weak top pair hand, and when you called you were a big favorite. He just got lucky in spiking the 2 outer to beat you.

It happens.

Well played.

I'm pretty sure that if you immediately went all in on the flop he still would've call. Top pair top kicker right?
