I think this is a really hard hand to play right. Lokks really good to start with and I`m often tempted to raise preflop, but very often I loose it. Is there someone here who have a good beginnertip to play those hands for a rookie like me?
Sorry for my bad english Smile

imo - in a full ring game or 6max cashgames - both should be worth to open with a standard raise atleast 3bet, no matter what position, even on utg and utg+1 in a full ring. So definately a raise preflop Blink.

Now if i started playing poker I raised not only 3bet but a lot more, as I didnt got a clue about bettings lol.

First in it is a raise short handed and at most positions on a full ring table. Just don't get carried away if you hit an ace and face strong resistance.

cash game?
raise preflop is a must, if you are first in as already said.
if someone has weakly raiseed before you I would try a reraise to test the water.
then....it depends on a lot of matters: number of callers/raisers, your and their position, flop ...and so on

AQ i always raise no matter where i am in position, however if im holding AQo and i get 3bet out of position then i fold (read dependent ofcourse!) but if i have AQs in position then i probably flat and see a flop but try not to overly bloat a pot since ur likely to run into AA/KK/QQ/AK a good portion of the time. I pretty much always fold it preflop if im facing an all in, again very read dependent here tho.

I consider AQ a nice hand, even more if you are in late position or you are going to open the pot in middle position. With an Ace a the table, depending on bettings in pre-flop, you can face this hand with security. And an Ace always is a good kicker for a Q top-pair.

AQ is not so great hand. Yeah, it looks strong, but I dont like to have it. This hand is weak to go all in preflop, so I just call with AQ and fold if some donk reraise or go all in.

Yeah AQ is a very pretty hand, especially suited but its a drawing hand and you will most often need to hit the board/flop with this hand. Play it aggressively pre-flop but fold to a 3bet. If you open raised and miss the flop try a Cbet but fold if you are raised or called. Cool

It's not a hand to go all-in with, unless you're facing maniac opponents, but if no one raised before you, definitely raise.

In fact, I always go all-in with AQ against a donk, because, if he indeed is a donk, it's for sure that he has a weaker hand. But ... if he indeed is a donk, probably you'll lose even though he had 72o!

Always depends on a number of factors, but definitely worth a raise preflop and then play semi-carefully unless you hit strongly (two pairs, top pair top kicker, straight or flush draw, etc.). The number of times you will be outkicked by Mr. AK who called your raise is sick, so be ready. GL!

I can see there are several ways to play this hand.... Guess I try more and learn to read players instead Smile I used some of your tips, everyone, yesterday and can see it works Smile) Raise 3bet in opening middle position worked best, at least yesterday Big Smile
Good luck everyone, but not against my A-Q Evil

its very important not to overplay this hand.
this means, its not suitable for multiway pots with action, not suitable for raise +3bet in front of u, well, you have to be able to sense strength in your opponent.
dont get yourself outplayed!

Just lost a suited A-Q against A-9 unsuited. Raised 3bet in middle position, he called. Flop was 5-6-7 suited in another colour. I raised half pot, he called. 4 next, small raise and call from me.and then 9 Confused Aww crap! Thumbs Down

I like this hand.. But never do preflop raises... just call if othe players make a low raise.. and wait the flop open to do some raise or call again.
