I often get ace with nine and under in early position if they are suited i sometime will limp and fold on a raise if not i just fold them.

Is it the good play or how do you play them.

On another note today i am in BB with A 5 no raise before me the flop come A 5 6 so i bet the pot one call the tur come wit a 6 my two pair are gone left with no kicker but i still bet the pot and he called the river a Q i check and he shoved so i just fold. Sad Sad

Depends on the game. If it is tournament for many an A, is good enough for an all in.
If it is suited, then no question about it Smile. I have seen many bluffing their way till river
with an ace and crap kicker Smile

Well, depending on my stack size, I like seeing flops with ace rags cause you can easily double up when you hit 2 pairs. But I prefer being the agressor and being in position as much as possible. So I won't EVER limp these in early position. I would raise or fold... this way I avoid losing lots of small pots with these and I get to see flops anyways and steal blinds. Also the C-bet works pretty often in a HU situation, even if you hit nothing. So really by not choosing a passive line, you end up taking less risk in the long run. But that's just my opinion Blink

The only spot where I would choose a passive line with ace rag is on the blinds. But I wouldn't call the original raise everytime, I would only call (or raise) if I think my ace high is ahead of most of this player's raising range.

Playing ace suited really can make you get a lot of money if played right , every hand is like that but be careful and dont call because you have best pair of ace as you have a lower kicker which will get beat by a higher one and this is the mistake most people do, not letting go of a dominated hand when it is likely a nit will have better kicker, anyway good luck at the tables make us proud and make a lot of money mate cheers peace out

Well that is a question with a hard answer sometimes I play those kind of hands like you and other times I play it a little more agressive Confused

For me there is not a standard solution to this kind of hands depending of the stack what kind of game it is on and for me most important what kind of players you are against

But like everything in poker and in life there is always more then a way Worship Worship

Don´t forget to be happy and enjoy life

Rag aces usually won't put you in tough/marginal spot in Limit Hold'em while it often will in No Limit Hold'em regardless of your position at the table.
These are the hands expecting to get a fold from opponents by raising pre-flop rather than to battle/invest post-flop skeptically.
