Default Board = Full house

Ok, here is the hand. Tell me how you would have played it. I see this kinda situation every once and awhile, and need to derive some kind of strategy for it.

1/2 dollar NL. Play is pretty conservative, nothing too crazy, pretty tight players. 5 players at the table.

I am on the button, and dealt ATs.
2 guys in front of me fold, I raise it a few dollars.
Small blind calls, so does the big blind. Pot = about 12 - 15 dollars (cant remember how much I raised).

Flop = 2 4 2

SB checks, BB checks, I check.

Turn = 2

SB checks, BB checks, I check.

River = 4

SB checks, BB checks,

Whats your move? A) check and hope you win with high card? B) Bet and push them out of the hand?

EDIT: High card isnt right. Not sure why I put that in there. so, A) should read "Check and split it 3 ways."

Let me further explain what I am thinking at this point.

Ok, 3 people in the hand. Everyone checking like crazy. Full house on the board, more then likely the full house on the board is the the best hand, and everyone is a winner, and it will be split 3 ways.

If I can bet big, I may be able to push one person out, and it gets split 2 ways. Or, I get lucky, push both out with my big bet, and I take everything.

OK, Here is the answer: I will totally check, but not because i'm hoping to have the big card. The big card doesn't metter in this hand. So you made a raise before flop. 2 players called you. I think they will probably have big hands or pocket pairs. Imagine if one of them had 55 he would of won that hand make a 22255 fullhouse. In other order they both checked after river until you do it. So you might of tryed a bet there, but i think the checking move was good.

Well, here is what I did.

I bet large. The first guy bailed. So I was happy, gonna split it 2 ways instead of 3. Right? Nope. The other guy turned over another 2.

ouch. Bad idea. Should have just checked and split it 3 ways. I learned a valuable lesson.

I think you made a few mistakes playing that hand.
Not that I am a great player when it comes to that sort of situations but I would have done it like this:
You have AT and raised preflop ,2 people call.
If u hit nothing on the flop but raised preflop and the 2 callers check before u
I think that you made your first mistake checking there.
If u made a defensive but good bet righ there you know where you would be
If no one calls your bet you take the pot .
If there is a player who calls then you know that he has hit something and if he doesnt reraise he would probably have a bottom pair or a low pocket.
If both players call your defensef modest"bluff"then you know they both hit something or on a draw.
If someone reraises then you know this hand is not going to deliver any money.
Thats wy if I am on the button and the other players check to me On the flop I try to figure out what they have right then with a good bet instead of waiting till the river and bet a really big bet and loose it all.
If I didnt hit anything on the flop and have no draw I try to take the pot then with a defensive bet or if im reraised Ill have to fold.
Think it will save you some money on long terms.

Rake kills you here when attempting to win potential split pots outright in small beginning pots..
