Default Allowing my aces to get cracked

I wanted to get smart..I saw that there was only 1 ep limper and i wanted some value for my aces..So i raised a small amount preflop so that he would call with any decent hand.
Then i partly couldnt credit him with the flush, and when the ace flopped on the river i just went pot crazy.

Your preflop raise is fine. I would've bet the flop harder, which in turn would lead to betting the turn harder. It's difficult to give credit to someone flopping a flush, but I don't see how someone can call a raise and two shots on that board without something that's beating you. The river changes that somewhat, but I'd still probably just check and call a small bet. I certainly would fold to the push.

I think you played it ok, up until you called his push.
Good judgement comes from experience....Experience comes from bad judgement.

First of all I cannot stand hand historys, but anyways I agree with these guys. You could have showed more disipline with your aces. That was actually a river to help you leave the hand, because now not only a flush beats you but he coul wack you with k10 off, or even 89 because you bet the flop so weak you gave him odds to chase. No doubt I probably would have made all the same mistakes.
