Why Russian players must always shove all in pre-flop with an ACE, the kickers do not matter and 90% of the time they hit their ace on the river today. Unreal I have had all the best hands going in and getting pissed....

haha they are aggressive based on their country i guess but I can tell you all the Russians I met there are some crazy ones out there as they mostly very aggressive and just some who are nits, but most of them play fairly aggressively based on the averages if you can check some stats you can see they play fairly aggressively over the average. Anyway you should know how to deal with aggression!
I know what you mean had AQ against russian A8 all in lose had AJ vs russian 97 off suit hit top pair top kicker on the flop he hit miracle trips on the river glad this was only free roll but s**t happens i guess your answer lies in a bottle of Russian Vodka

I don't suppose they developed some kinda hacking program do you? Maybe they can see what's coming? lol Did you see that clip of Tony G knocking out a russian guy from a tourny? It was very funny, although he was very insulting.. lol.
I knew the outcome of that hand before the turn came. Standard to hit the second highest nut flush and of course someone had that queen needed to beat you. He was going to call with QQ with one diamond needed even if you went all in on the flop.

Im not trying to defend russians here, but the all in with any Ace is a general phenomenon, Players from all countries do this. I am doing this also depending on the game my stack and point of a tournament. Cant say though that i am getting the same luck with all the rest doing this.

I must be the only one on Party P that folds A-rag the amount of people who go all in with A-123456 is unbelievable and the thing is they hit their A most of the time.It only makes them do it more i love someone catching them although it doesn't seem to happen too much from what i've seen so far. i tried it for a while and i just kept losing so i'll just leave it to them and donk with my usual 10J

well snippy tourney life is kinda different and at some point Ax is like godsend, lol
that guy with Q9o though...
but yea hate it when you get QQ or KK and someone with A3o calls ur 3/4b and then hits his ace, happened to me way too many times too but hey thats poker. Most of the time, they wont actually hit their ace so its a good thing for us, as those people who call any bet or even shoves with Ax should be good for our bankroll... in theory

ok to answer the original question from OP: "Why Russian players must always shove all in pre-flop with an ACE, the kickers do not matter...?" a) they are making money in the long run doing this... (and i would shove 36 off all day long if i knew i would be a long term winner doing so) b) they are fcukin morons... c) a+c (fcukin morons and long term winners) d) poker is rigged e) i am selling tomatoes for $2.99 a kilo

On the averages they play aggressively any Ax. I tag them as agro fish.So against them fold all pairs except AA,AK. Pokerstars babysitting russian players they bring tons of money. Adapt your game and pray to pokerstars gods maybe its your turn to win.
