Hi.
When you are playing deep (imagine 200BB), and we are dealt Aces.
There's two players with 50BB that shove, we are the next to talk but there's one player with 100BB after us.
Normally you just call the bet or shove?

I really don't know if is better to shove or call and lead on the flop.

How do you play in this situations? Do you play AA the same way you would play KK or queens?
How important is the size stack of the player after you?
Ex: different play if you have 100BB or 200BB?

Thanks in advance

Personally, I don't want to play AA against three players, two is enough to be going on with and with each additional hand in there your equity pre is diluted.

I would definitely shove to isolate the two shorter stacks.

If the player behind has something he is prepared to call off half his stack with then he might be coming along for the extra 50 bb anyway.

You're probably right, thanks for your answer
