slow play and re-raise all in after flop or if you are short stack allin preflop and God may help you hahaha. when I played in pokerstars a year ago all in with AA was huge badbeat at 7/10 times. they had changed the law of chances over there haha.
it depends on your opponets style,if they are really agresive,just smooth call the blind and when they raise you,1:if you are short stack move allin,2:if you have enough chips:3 times re-raise,if the flop doesn't bring anithing weird "Jd,Td,9d" or "K,K,3" move all,or make a high bet to make then fold ! tha's for me the "most easy"(dont know the translation XD)way to play ;)
you should check intellipoker or pokerstrategy for poker articles
You raise 3-4 bb pre flop, if someone raised before you, you raise him back. If there were re-raising preflop, like someone raises, you re-raise and he/she calls, then you should get it in on like 100% of flops.
If you raised preflop, and someone just called, you always bet the flop, turn and the river unless things get scary.
There are spots where you should fold aces, like versus someone who is nitty, that called your preflop raise, called flop bet and raised your turn raise you are like always drawing to 2 outs.
what are you talking about? i know how to play poker trust me...its you that dont understand what i mean..one way to play AA in good early position is to limp and hope that someone raise and then you reraise...ofcourse it isnt the best move always..but on some tables...in EARLY position it can eb very effective.
Well you might personally think that but from the point of view of game theory, it really is pretty bad. I can see the reasoning behind openlimping/limping in general of some inexperienced players but it's just way off. I can't really think of any situation where openlimping would be the most profitable play, but for limping I can think some (e.g. shorthanded low stakes cash game, 100bb stacks, some of the players before you have limped and you are in sb w/A2s).
Not gonna go too deep in to the subject, otherwise this post would end up being too long!
Well ok i understand thats ur opinion..i still think this is a good move in the right time vS right opponents...maybe it isnt a good move for most people then..but i think i can use it...and that it can be more profitable at times :D.
It's not an opinion, it's a proven fact! ;D Obviously against brainless fishes you can do that and don't have to balance your limpingrange (wow what a term, makes me wanna puke :D) with some mediocre hands, but it won't still be the most profitable strategy. But hey, I don't wanna bitch around and I respect your opinion. I just like to talk about poker, no matter what's the subject :)
Actually now that I started thinking more about it, I came up with couple of veeery theoretical situations (which would most likely not happen in real life) where I could openlimp AA. So I guess that you're partly right, at least in theory! I kinda jumped in to a pool full of piss now with this statement, didn't I? :}}
Well its not a fact..it is no best way of playing a hand...you have to sit at the table..know the players...i also play other hands in a similar way so all and all i know it is good for my game..sometimes it can be a good move and you can make more if you play the hand like that...and i think it is important not to do the same thing every time.
it depends on your position at the table and the players with you are playing. if they are slow players then you must raise a bit, ir they're agressive players just call and wait for them to raise for you so you can suck them to the nuts.
Seems like nobody knows anything about poker here, lol...
What to do with AA is mostly depend on your position and on the opposition players, but there is a FACT that you cant ignore, which is:
With AA in hand preflop you have the BEST possible hand, with the highest chance of winning. If you slow-play it, you give a chance for other players hands to develop. I recommend you to go agressive with monster hands. I enraged so many times when I analysed my game and realised that i should have raised the hand instead of check or call. In poker if you don't risk your money you won't win anything at all so don't be afraid of a big raise in preflop with AA. Someone will call, or if not you atleast won the blinds and didn't risk a bigger amount of money by getting into a battle that you won't surely win.
bro,everybody knows that,but you only recive AA 1 or 2 times max every 4 hs play probably,so if you are smart and you analyze the game a little bit you should try to "play your opponents" ,i mean play according to their style and try to decieve them to get the max money out of your hands,so "at least won the blind" is not a good advice,actually there not a correct way of playing poker, i mean there's no formula,you have to figured it out by yourself while you are playing :)
I play poker for years now, mostly cashgames or low-money sitngos, and as I experienced that I benefit more from agressive play. Of course against some superagro players or lowskilled "callers" you need to play it tight. As I said it depends on the exact situation, but I if you won't show some power preflop a lot of players will call and it significantly reduces your chances of winning the hand. It's a fact sir. :)
UTG - raise 3-4BB
MP - re-raise after raisers or limpers, 3-4BB if u'r 1st raiser.
HJ/CO/BU - good raise for 3-4 limpers, not so big re-raise(2-3x) for 1 raiser-1 caller(this option depend on mostly of ur chips amount and ur opponent's chips amount, cuz u can also have the 100% push situation). U can also go all in if u have raisers and re-raisers(to be 1vs1 1vs2 in pot).
MB/SB - it is always agressive playing bcuz u are on worst position w/o information then flop is.
p.s.: dont love AA so much in multipots, dont love AA so much if good opponent have shoved his chips on tern or river, but think about his range to do it.
Keep ur mind up and practice a lot. It is only the way to understand how to play AA right and not only AA.gl
Actually, it depends on your position. I'd suggest to slowplay it (or maybe minraise), if it's in one of the first positions, if it's one of the last positions, you should make something more serious, but still, it depends on situation and the players around.
Just fold, there is going to be someone with 2-4 offsuit who will end up getting a full house. Ok, serious. I could go all-in or play slow, it would completely depend on the situation. How did you play your previous hands and how did they plays theirs. What do you expect them to think about you. I often like to slowly drag players into the game by gradually increasing my bets and make sure they can not go back, AA is the best possible hand but that still doesn't mean shit if everyone is going to call your all-in. Start slow and increase your raises every round until the river where you can make your final call based on the strenght of your hand. Anyway, poker sucks.
you bet 3 big blinds. allways re-raise if other player raise,try to up the bet(fact that your opponent) to 1.5, insite it to the all-in from your opponent. always try to go all in before reaching the flop. but you can choose to play passively is not as long as many players and you have position on them.
gl in the tables :D
