I have seen way worse, but that definatly sucks. I think the only thing you can do is say nice hand, and move on. Bad beats are going to happen, you have to learn to accept it. I used to get so steamed, but I have just dealt with the fact that it is part of the game. Think about it for a moment, and move on to the next hand or the next tournament...

I would be check-raising the flop 9to 500 or so), rather than check-calling. That oughta weed out the drawers. I can totally understand why you might want to slowplay AA, esp with that flop.As they say, "I'd rather win a small pot with AA, than lose a big pot"

The reason why I slow played the flop was because there were no draws on the flop. If the board had two suits or two straightening cards, I would have raised this flop to make them pay a price for their draws
