Default How to play AA

Its ridiculous online the way some people play AA. You ever play online and people will just go allin with this hand regardless of the chips and there postion. These are people who are bad players and who are scared to lose with them. You have to make a decent raise preflop. ( this all depends on position but basically this is how it goes) That should get rid of most of the rif raf. Then if you get a caller he probly has face cards or a pocket pair. SO you make your reads and bet hard on the flop if you think u have him because you dont want him catching cards. If he goes fishing most likely he wont hit and you'll win a lot of chips.

I just think people expect too much from AA. They hear "favoured to win", think "gonna win", and any time they lose with AA it's a suckout. Granted, it often is, but AA is by no means a certain victory! You have to work at it and bet it smart, like any other hand.

I never go all-in pre-flop with AA no matter what to easy to get outdrawn. Some joker could call with junk and beat you make a big bet to see where your at and go from there.

So if the entire table went all-in preflop you'd fold? Never say never, especially with aces in the hole.

In my experience, the more people who go all in pre-flop increases the chance that your AA's get beat by some crummier starting hand. So if the entire table went all-in, I would have to look carefully at my chip stack/position before I do anything, but I would probably fold. The ideal situation would be when you raise a significant amount to weed out lower starting hands and play from there.

You do realize that you're a pre-flop favorite against ANY hand with aces, right? Why wouldn't you put your money in as a favorite? Aces will get cracked, believe me, but I just don't get why you wouldn't play them.

IMO, it isn't wise to go all-in with AA's without any regard to position. It all depends on where you are. Nevertheless, you should always try to trap people before the flop so they don't mess you up with their junk.

AA is extremely hard to play. I think the hardest part is just letting it go especially online. Many people online just don't know when to let it go. For example if theres a 4 diamonds on the board, and 2 people go all in theres juts no way u need to be in. I have seen it probally 100 times where people actually call the majority of there chips with those 4 diamonds up there. Most of the time its not so easy as the flop can look good but someone could have hit a lucky 2 pair. That is why you have to raise pre0flop with AA, and it needs to be a big raise if your playing at a very agressive table. Thats why i usually prefer low pockets because you can either hit your set on the flop, or hit crap and fold the hand with out a worry. Just seems way easier that way.

I actually think that the move early in a big mtt such as a freeroll is a great play. At least one donk is gonna call you if not 2. It is a good chance to double or triple up. As the tournament progresses I tend to just standard raise it depending on position. If you happen to get outdrawn you where going to lose a large portion of your stack and it might make it diffficult to cash in the tournament.

I just raised pre-flop and then make a big bet after flop.
Pre-flop i don't go all-in ,just if someone else goes and then i will call.
Last night i just took someone out with KK against AA. K came on the river.
That was an all-in hand pere-flop from his part. I was lucky.
