What will you do with AA, KK, AK or any other great hand? Are you slow playing this hand or are you really aggressive?


My opinion: the most time i play this hand aggressive because i really don't want to lose that hand. I'm happy with the blind at that moment. Some times i do slow play buth then i've got a small pot to win.

What do you do?

i always play my big hands aggressively (unless against a maniac)
u want to win a big pot with them and dont want people to call and hit with their junk against your premium hands.
slow playing is inviting badbeats so avoid it as much u can

Me being inexperienced play them different based on position and how many callers.

If I'm BB and had several callers I generally wait for the flop to see how much potential the hand has. If only 2 or 3 callers with no raise I at times may go allin. There's always your gut feel and decisions are based on how others play. Tuff for me to give just one answer, but that's probably how most feel about the situation. Good Luck to All!

Don't post it again. Better write a post and ask admin to move it.

In general I play these hands agressivly.
But sometimes - depending on the table how loose and agressive opponents are - I try to limp in from early postion hoping that somebody raises and then push AllIn

One pair is not enough so play slow. We don't want to many opponents in the hand with this type of hand, so raising preflop to thin the field should be the best play.

@shokaku: Everytime and in any case ?
As I wrote, for sure I just try to do this if I am very much convinced (because od the opponents) that somebody will raise and then push AllIn.

That is why i said "should be". If we have a "punish the limpers" guy acting after us, we can set up a trap. But we should be able to fold if no one raises and the flop is ugly.

Okay, thanks for your explanations to this.
I will try to remember them when I get my next AA in early position Cool Blink .
I guess it will help me to avoid my former faults.

Always raise/reraise with KK-AA (not AK) because I don't want to be cracked by some randomcrap hands...
With AK flat calling against some nits with position is nice... or for some overaggro I like to bet/hate to call donks.

I think you should always raise/re-raise with a monster hand preflop. If your hand improves post-flop and you play against agressive players you could slowplay it to get the most out of it.

my mom always told me : Never slowplay premium hands.

If you really slowplay Aces or Kings there is NO reason to moarn why they were cracked !

Neither slowplay nor very agressive. I just play them as I would play other pf raisable hands, but when someone re-raises my AA/KK pf I don't see any point in calling - I either raise high or most of the time I just shove. When you get a re-raise pre flop there is a very good chance, that you'r shove will be called, no matter what hand your opponent holds (of course if he isn't a very good player who tried to bluff). AK is little bit diffrent for me. I see no point in stacking off pre flop with this hand, because there won't be too much situations when you're a big favourite. Most of the time it would be a coinflip or 60-40.

I was tranied to play em this way...but know this ...it doesn't always work cause one can get donked. Raise 4-6 BB any position or raise/reraise all-in. The theory here is to isolate or win outright. This style of play works most of the time, I'm affraid if I slow play em, I'll allow someone to
suck out on me. Also, if that happens and I'm down to a show down then forget the table image...
it got shot down right there. I'd rather go down fighten than rollin over and playin dead.

it really depends on table.
right now where im playing at i will most of the time slowplay AK or even aces. yea i know.. most will say its asking for trouble, but i can fold AA without to hesitate if necessary. except i know there will be a RR then im raising big and RR allin if thers more than 1 caller (if i konw its a lag player who goes all in with AK AQ after my raise then i also go allin).
i dont mind losing a couple blinds with monsters, but if i hit once...it all pays back and i win big.
tourny is something else, but here also depending on table, most of the time i will raise tho.

Hi - I would play these hands agressively in a tournament situation, especially near the bubble as others are worried that they will bust and if you play these slowly in a tourney you are more likely fall to a bad beat - or dopey hands.

In a cash game I would tend to play these slowly as the other players will not no how to play you in the future. Even if you lose the hand this will give you more opportunities in the future. Anyway GL however you play these hands and remember there is no correct way to play them, just a gut feeling on the day.

Big Smile
