never limp with AA you open the field when you do and invite others to come along for the ride. All ways raise to get rid of the s**t hands if you get any callers you need to know where you are in the hand so letting others in for free or very cheap is a big no no. Raising get the crap out (or should do) You could / should have been worried about trips as you let them in cheap. If you had put him on trips would you still be in the pot? They had come along for a reason...what do you think he's holding is some thing you need to ask your self more often. RAISE AA

The internet and every alley is chock full of stories about AA being cracked because people choose to limp with them...I think this was one of the first things I learned not to do when learning holdem., That and choking the dealer with his own bowtie....but I digress...
------------ Oh, and this too
Posted by shokaku: You are still quite deep here. If it ends all in at the river you are either playing against bad players or are beat.
this is one thing most new players fail to notice. There is a reason people are calling your bets, and it is usually one of these two. The turn raise, what was it for? Did you know what to do if you were reraised? ALWAYS know what to do if you get reraised, before you bet

After some time i learned one thing.... It's always better to raise with AA/KK pre-flop making everyone fold and only getting blinds then limp it and see people getting 2 pairs , sets straights or flushes and loose much. But the worst thing is that after limp u always want to belive your great cards are still the best so you don't really care of what floop show which is the worst part.

AA is all in if nobody calls then its bad luck but often someone does call. some people say rais 6 or 7 times the BB but i did that often also and when you are at a loose table your aces will get cracked. my advise is to just shove them al in lots of times when you get these kind of hands AA or KK someone else also has a pocket pair or AK
It'a always dangerous slowplaying Å depends on the riske you want to take: right move is to raise preflop ( never limping ) and, if the flop is good, to go all in, as for me. Otherwise if you want to try to catch some fishes you know sometimes you could be fished

As everybody says : RAISE PREFLOP -_- why the hell all people wants to slowplay Aces and kings... that's something you should do really seldom in a specific game : when you get aces or kings in first or 2nd position in a ten players very aggressive table (there you have a good chance to get a raise behind and maybe a reraise, all you have to do then is to push...) but plz, on a 6 players table : raise !!
