Default Be an agressor

The thing is, that you have to show people you can raise on a variety of hands. Make some raises, if you sense weakness, and steal the pot. If you do that enough times people will call you, and ultimately, you will be lying there with pocket Aces, ready to take the pot down.

That is a wonderful point. I was playing with this guy the other night, and he would not play anything unless it was a huge hand. So, everytime this guy played, everyone folded. And he showed his hand everytime,,, i guess to show that he only played big hands. Anyway, needless to say, he didnt make much or last very long.

I don't think raising x4 was a mistake...it was just bad luck as nobody else had anything good enoudh to call...things like this happen all the time and you shouldn't get angry with yourself..

Exclamation Slow playing

Raising with aces is a perfect stratergy I think. I have been caught slow-playing my pocket rockets too many times. Every hand I received aces I had slow played and never caught anything on the flop. I lost a lot of money slow playing so I recomenned raising with them because the chances of catching a set on the flop is marginal. Like Acorn89 said you could have been up against another pocket pair and they would have caught a set.

Either a large raise or substantial one or all in for me when I get aces.

You really got lucky to get AA, and you got it again. That's unbelieve, I never got so good hand in a raw. If you get a AA don't bet so much. Try to slow play and you maybe can get some chips.

In my opinion, AA is a great hand (others would dispute that). Anyway, I bet 4 times the small blind. And guess what.... Everyone folds.

Later in the tourny, I get AA AGAIN. Again I bet 4x BB, and yet AGAIN, everyone folds.

Is 4X bb too much to bet with this monster starter? Table was playing very conservatively, but still.

Its doesn't work to get all in , all the time. Becuase maybe all its going to fold and you lose a very good hand.

hmm well when i get the AA pocket rockets, i like to start slow and rais a little and hope for a good turn out on the flop, like an K 2 9 or something like that. But then again i am a fairly agressive player and like to raise if i dont have a AA ill raise with a J8 but that is just how i am i dont know it its norm. AA you need to be carful not to scare them away that sucks though sorry man nice hands though.
