I don't actually recall loosing AA, but maybe that's just my mind playing tricks on me BTW, as DaMessiah666 stated it is different to hold AA in Texas and on the other types of poker and I only play Texas NL.

My worst ever AA crack was on the bubble of a $33 sng. I had AA 4 people left in the game. I raise 4x with my AA and get re raised all in.
We flip the cards over and the other player is holding AA too. I was so annoyed that after finally catching a good hand that it would be slipt pot... I have AdAh, player has AcAs. The flop comes with 3 spades... the turn a heart and river another spade
I didn't take the time to read all replies so I'm sorry if i repeat what some1 already suggested.
I took this from a study with a Mathematical approach. Result: The average winning percentage (out of 100) with AA (pre-flop) is: 85% vs 1 opponent; 73% vs 2opnts.; 64% vs. 3opnts.; 43% vs. 6opnts.; 31% vs. 8opnts.
in this poll 80% suggested to lose 20% of the time with AA. Interesting to know how these 80% play their AA, what type of games they play (tourney or cash, and cash how many opponents) and how big of a factor is the position to their AA strategy ? With Å Are u interest to win before the flop, or do consider AA as a hand you can trap a player if the community cards allow u to?
Personally, I play 6max cash games and i like to use the AA to win pre-flop. My perfect scenario is winning by 3 or 4 betting.
BTW I also voted 20% of the time I lose with AA. The 20% a great example of the 9/10 rule!
Hate fishes, gambles or a wrong read getting lucky beating my AA.
TBH this is a crappy post coz the odds speak for themselves You cannot say that you lose 80% of the tmie coz in the long run you will have won 80% of the time math is math my friend you cannot deny that

if I play AA all-in there's about 1/5 or 1/4 percent that I lose. But if I slow play it, I noticed it's like 1 in 3 that some other guy with a trashy hand gets in the way with a very favorable flop and wins at last....

I just got mine cracked twice in a row gettin it all in pre - flop in PLO - 5$ DoN's. I know they are far less of a favourite in Omaha ( i think you are about a 2/1 rather than a 4/1 fav (in nlh) ) - but it still stings like a bitch. Its usually Kings that get me, or getting flushed - usually with 4 suited cards appearing. I guess the main point here is - you hardly ever remember winning with them but you can always remember them getting cracked. Just be happy in the knowledge that over time HU you will prevail four times out of five (ish)..........

thats quite difficult to thin out preflop because to me it seems that there are a lot of calling stations that even call 7 or 8 times the BB with conectors like 4 6,8 9.and even 2 3 ( maybe the rooms are filt with pokerbots latly )
