Here i am talking about MTT or SNG because i don't play very much ring game so i could not tell how i would play them.

If i am UTG or any position and there is no raise before me then i will raise 5 or 6 BB and if the blind are very low i will bet more.

If there is a raise before me and with other callers or not i will go all in because i don't want to give free cards to others. If there are more then one already in some will probably fold and i will one or two callers IMO giving me more chance to win.

I would appreciate telling us how you are playing yours pre flop or any comments of how i would play mine. Smile Smile

the best way is to raise it by the pot bet or 2x , remember that u are trying to drag them in the bet circle even if your openents hold Ak or AQ, not to scare them away. I never go all in with that hand maybe in tourny when there are loose players around.

Playing AA depends on the situation in which you find yourself. The most important thing to remember is there is no set way to play any given hand, but consider many more factors. Probably the one point to remember is not to overheat AA as that will scare others away which generally you do not want (as Buva says).

... Big Smile< I pretty much agree with Buva....!!!

... Big Smile< I don't care what or who, or me, is in what position... I just slow play them by only raising to at least keep SOME potential victims in the hand....then depending on what happens next,...I'll either raise bigger or shove or call any all in,....and in MOST cases,...you will win the hand along with many many chips...!

Depend on situation !! should be more attention . Our stack include, cause if we have poor stack no enough space for tactical bet so I will shove as soon as possible. In medium/big stack I usually play standart raised 3BB or more if blind too small in any position, just call if someone reraised - never reraised cause no guarantee AA will be win, with medium/big stack survive more important for me in
MTT. This is preflop.

I suggest you read poker book pinotte, you will get complete coaching Smile

I just played an A A hand i have a raise in front of me i changed my usual and double is raise he came back and shoved sure a called he show 10 10 and i won the hand.

Do you think that i would have the guy to fold if i had shoved on is raise I really don't think so.

Your odds of winning with your aces will go down with every players you have in the hand.

IMO slow playing aces is the best way to get them lose. Smile Smile

well pocket aces seems good hand as well it can bust any hand almost 60percent on 2 players but then it is the worst hand if someone goes all in and all u have to do is just call all your chips and suddenl its gone like air so be careful guys good luck...

Like any other good starting hand. Standard raise, when first in the pot, a reraise, when someone has raised before. Of cause i am far more aggro, when facing reraises preflop, then with lesser hands. If someone else thinks he has a good hand, then all chips will end in the middle before the flop.

If i am in early position i raise and if i get a re-raise i shove,if i'm late position and there's a raise i shove,sometimes i shove with no raise Smile As pinotte says you don't want to be up against 3 or 4 players when you've got them.

I play it just like any other raising hand (depending on position, limps or raises in front of me of course). But it's only the nuts pre flop, so your goal is to get it all in pre flop. If the blinds are small, I might raise to 3x instead of 2x but I don't like changing my bet sizes as it can give opponents an idea of the strength of my hand.

What happens most of the time though is that you'll end up in a 2 or 3 way pot on the flop. Most of the time a continuation bet will win you the hand. If not then you can either go for pot size control/trap on the turn or keep betting big if you think your aces are still good.

I wont go into too much detail but they whole aim is to get it all in preflop for me.

I will usually go hard in the games I play because I play freeroll/low stakes where people will call with anything.

UTG I very rarely raise with AA. I prefer to limp in with a call, in the hope that you get a couple of callers/raisers at which point I am then shoving all in.
The risk of this though is that everyone calls and no-one raises. When this happens, it is nearly always the right move to fold to any big bets on flop/turn/river. It is quite hard to do that though and will need a lot of discipline.

I used to slow play aces with raises and stuff, but i ended up losing most of the times,
when the hand was over.
So as i have said before, after a point, its is always an all in situation preflop and whatever comes
my way, unless its close to bubble with decent prize money.

at the moment i am mostly playing cash games then I try to :

- get as much in the pot preflop, preferable against 1 player
- this with a standard raise (3 a 4 bb) when I am first to act, mostly get called , continue bet after flop
- when I have a raise in front --> reraise 3/4 pot
- when got a raise and reraise in front --> all in
- when gor a raise and call --> 3/4 pot reraise or pot reraise

in SNG or mtt --> try to get heads up , in early stage you get mostly more callers (especially in freerolls)so just cross your fingers

in late stage of mtt --> standard raise

I really like your UTG strategy to limp. I am playing the same kind of game you are playing and it is pretty rare that you won't have a raise and a few callers so when it come back to you and you shoved usually a few callers will fold and you will be left with one or to opponents which give you very good odds and a very nice pot that you will win most of the time.
