A poker hand that lost me a $17,300 pot

Yesterday night I was playing cash games along with a couple of big tournaments at Pokerstars. One of the poker tables was a $5,000 No Limit and I was doing pretty ok, until I got dealt Aces on the button. I ran into Kings in that poker hand and in the end we pushed all our chips in the middle preflop. The poker hand’s pot reached 17 thousand dollars and I consider it to be my biggest bad beat in terms of money in my online poker career. Here is the poker hand where I lost my biggest ever pot.

PokerStars No-Limit Hold’em, $50.00 BB (4 handed)

SB ($10764)
BB ($11771)
UTG ($5000)
Jimmakos (Button) ($8568)

Preflop: Jimmakos is Button with A, A
UTG bets $150, Jimmakos raises to $450, 1 fold, BB raises to $1000, 1 fold, Jimmakos raises to $2300, BB raises to $11771 (All-In), Jimmakos calls $6268 (All-In)

Flop: ($17311) 7, K, 4 (2 players, 2 all-in)

Turn: ($17311) 6 (2 players, 2 all-in)

River: ($17311) 4 (2 players, 2 all-in)

Total pot: $17311 | Rake: $2

Results:
Jimmakos mucked A, A (two pair, Aces and fours).
BB had K, K (full house, Kings over fours).
Outcome: BB won $17309
