Sitting with AA  0   
I was wondering what would you guys do if you we're sitting with AA.. Would you slow play it? raise, bet i usually slow play it But doesnt work very often.

One pair hands, and aces are just one pair, are not strong enough to play slow. And you don't want to many players in the pot with aces, so raise or reraise preflop.

Slowplaying AA is calling for trouble. In a multiway pot with AA you will win mostly small pots or loose some big ones. Narrow the field, raise and re-raise. Try to put put an opponent all in before the flop, but never scare him to much (like reraising directly allin), reraise 3x, go allin when the right raise size is more than half of your remaining stack.

Many guys out there post hands with their beat AA like if it was a bad beat, you read the hand, they tried to be tricky, invited "the whole family" to see a flop, and got what they deserved.

Well, I think that AA should be played in a standard way (raise) most of the time, but if you're a little confident, you should try to slowplay it about 1 time out of 10, so you can induce the other players in error. Bust most, of the time, play it safe Cool

For me it depends on position. Ultimate is sitting in the BB waiting to see what everyone else will do, and then repopping whatever raises come along. If I am UTG or UTG+1 on an aggressive table I will often flat call, wait for the inevitable raise and then reraise the sh*t out of it. If there is no raise then obviously proceed with caution unless you hit the board. In mid or late position, even with no other bets or raises I will raise heavily. Especially in late position someone in the blinds with a decent hand like JJ or TT might sniff a bluff and reraise you, and then BAAAMM! And then they go allin and flop a set... Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap!

GL!

There is no standard way to play AA. Depends on position and what other players do or are likely to do but yes always raise preflop - it is better that everyone folds than to let ppl enter the hand where you can't possibly get a read.

So if no one has raised before you, you must raise. The only exception where you might slow play is if you are sure that you are going to get raised eg an aggressive raiser raising every hand. otherwise slow play is asking for trouble.

You can just call if the pot has already been raised but it all depends on so many factors and i would advice beginners to always raise no matter what.

I rarely slowplay rockets: never in cash game;
I often play DoNs and sometimes when I'm bigstack and in bubble phase (when shortstake play push or fold) I just flat call BB to catch some fish in the net...and even if I get caught I am not in big trouble due to my big stack.

u must rise and be aggresive becouse uhave only 2 outs all over who play against u have more outs so ull must play agresive game and no slow play slow play with AA allways slow kills u and u ll from the winner at the starting hand become the looser at the end off the hand Smile
good luck all

JUst been in a tourn, knee deep in top 20 and I get delt AA, im in late and re-raise the aggro chip leader who in turn puts me all in, OK, cards turn over he shows 44, wonky aces!!! from the chip leader to the fairly TAG player, no need to say I lost, its AA Vs 44, why should I win.

I always play slowly.. low raises.. because I have lost a lot of times setting all in pré flop..

I think that is the best way.. if open more A in table with now full house possibility or fllushes.. take all in

There is no easier way to know whether a limper has caught AA and is playing slow ... Who is limping and after a raise is going all-in? Only two type of players: donks and slow-players

slow playing aces is asking for trouble, unless u knw some1 will raise and u wanna reraise. but always remember AA is just a pair and they can lose too, so be careful on suspicious boards.

When i get dealt aces i dont have a consisten play everytime. For the most part i usually raise pretty big 4 to 5 times the big blind. But then again it all depends on the players im playing with and the whole situation. Know your other players and be smart.

I should opt for this too because too many times my aces in early position are only good for gathering the blinds. When people see you raising from UTG and you have a decent image at the table they will know it's trouble. And as you said, someone will try to outsmart everyone and raise from late position to steal their blinds.

in todays poker,you cant play slow if its cash tables,beacuse donks pay on all hands pre flops,so must do bigger raise or he will call with some stupid hand and will hit something!so many bad beats you can get and then you will ask yourself why you needed that!

Slowplay you pay. U don't want marginal cards to come and get some weird 2 pairs which will knock you out. Also depends on what are you talking about , cash or Stt/Mtt. Sometimes u can do it depends on situation and enemy.
But vs unk it's always a raise.

I play them diffrently, it depends on how I use to play other lower value hands.
