Its the cases where you would have been better without them. The only time you had to win the hand you lost It is unusual of course to get them so many times. I would have gone all in preflop every single one of them hoping

... < ...Funny you mention that pinotte...! I've gotten pocket aces and have gotten quad aces a few times today and the last few...!
... < You can see in the one pic the nice flop...and in the other how much faith buddy had in his KK...hard to fold,....I know.... < ...especially against a scaredy cat l'il ol' shark bait worm like ME just squirmin' and jiggin' for a bite...!!! < lol....heheee....
... < I just LOVES slow playin' them aces....ahahahahhahahahahahahahhahahahahaaaaa....
My 'record' is that any time I would get them playing Spin 'n' Go everybody just folds on me. Never in my life happened that when I had aces during any kinda Spin 'n' Go somebody would have just call - doesn't matter if I shoved or slow-played them - nobody ever called it. It's quite ridiculous. True story.

This is an incredible run of events and you seemed to have got very unlucky. I never know how to play pocket aces, especially in early position, and i always seem to make the wrong decisions. Just shove every time and take away the thinking process!!

To be honest, shoving pre flop when there's no raises before is one of the worst play you could do with aces, the only benefit I see from this play is that 88 to KK could call if they think you're shoving AK or AQ and are scared to play post flop... But yeah I'd rather raise normally and hope that people 3bet.
I like to play these pairs exactly for what they are: a pair. If you get 2 or more callers, just play the hand cautiously. A pair is just a pair. It's usually pretty easy to see if villain caught something that can beat your overpair since he will most likely raise you at some point if you keep betting. Sure I lose pots like everybody else when my opponents get lucky, but I rarely get my money in bad with big pairs...

Ok AA was the best hand before the community cards some, but in the micros we see oftem moren than 1-2 opponents, so it was not so easy to win. Any Player build a runner runner Monster Hand and start with a crap Hand before.
