I am begginer in online poker.
When I get AA pre flop I don't know what to do.
Raise 3 times bb .half of the stack .go all in or simply just call bb and wait to see the flop.

I know that depends how big your stak is or other players staks etc.

Sry for mu bad English.

Well for sure it depends on several factors.
At first: Are you talking about cash games or tournaments.
In addition, freerolls are again a different thing.
In general: You want to bring money in the pot but don`t play with too many opponents, best would be HU.

one thing to rememember is that you should almost always raise your Aces preflop. There are only few situations to slow play them but as a beginner they don´t care. So play aggressive!

rise 5-6 bb or better put all becouse some limpers if u ll rise preflop not to many can call u and they ll allways have to many luck and beating your aa if u ll rise less then 5-6 bb ( becouse 3 bb easy calling making from donks and fishers 5-6 bb they ll allways finking more about calling and 80 % that they ll not cal u )
all in preflop u ll can win only blinds if nobody calls but if someone call it will be not a fish and he ll hold really strong cards too
good luck in future

I lost so many times before with this hand that the only thing i can do is to go all-in. Many who plays against me already know what i have, since this is one of the rare situations where i go all-in pre-flop. I know it can look strange: if one plays to win money, one always want to have the best hand. But when it comes the best of all hands, instead of trying to catch the biggest of the pots, the only thing one does is to go all-in and wait for others to come too, and wait for table cards not to bring anything for others. Strange, but its like analysing the extremes of poker. If 7-2 is bad, A-A can also be.
Note: this doesnt mean i also go all-in with 7-2 Smile

yeah and if you do so you should make a note. Just write down that you have Aces when you fire out. Oh wait, like you playd it everyone already knows it.

Do you ever win more than blinds after a while? (if your opponent has a monster such like KK it doesnt count...)

It's complicated! If you do not bet too much, you risk leaving two pairs to beat the opponent by example! The other day I bet 10 bb, I received a call, Flop: J, 10, 5 ... the opponent back all-in ... I was not sure but I paid. Result, he hit two pair on the flop J 10 ... (pre flop I would not pay an increase of 10 bb with this hand) but that's what happens!

Is a raise situation allways, slow playing is too complicated wen you are beginner, something near 4BB is a regular bet to make sure you leave fishes away, but pay atentiont to the stack/binds relations of your opponents to make sure they will play strongs hands against your AA. then you will have easier decisions on flop.

It seems that we'll see this question about hundred times per second... There are MILLIONS of threads with this question. Just play your normal game (3/4BB + 1 per limper), raise it like you would raise QQ. When someone raises before you re-raise him or shove if you have to. Don't shove if you play on weak table, because you'll get sometimes 2+ calls and your aces aren't such a big favourite when it comes to 1 on 1 pot. And fold them if you see a dangerous flop and it's EV+. Don't play aces ATW because it's the strongest hand pre flop. It might be the worst hand post flop as well.

Although it seems very simple to play aces it's not really the case. As many stated above it's really important to know on what game are you playing(cash games, tournament or sng). On cash games it's pretty simple but on sngs or tournaments it really depends on the stage of the tournament you are in and the size of your stack, it's a bit more complicated.
I'm a cash games player so here is how to play aces. From any position you need to raise. How much you raise it's up to you. My standard raise is 3x but on monster hands like pocket aces or kings i raise 4x. This is what you do if you are the first to speak. If a player before you raised, make a 3 bet.
If a player before you raised, and another player raised the pot again there is really a single option left: go all in. As a statistic you'll win with poket aces 60% of the times, when you don't you simply got a bad beat but it's okay if you apply a good bankroll management.
Good luck at the tables!

lol i was about to write the same glad you said.
i was talking to a guy about the same thing the other day the bb was 150 and he opened up for 675 everyone folded. I said tha was either az waste of a good hand or just a stupid raise, he said he could beat K and Qs. I said to him so do you not like action when you have the best hand pre flop, he said he was happy to take the blinds and if someone calls im way ahead so basically hes just shitting himself to play the best pre flop hand in poker lol.
if your 1st to act i think unless its a freeroll 1/2 cent or 2/5 cent cash i would raise the same as normal 3 or 4 whatever you raise all the time with

yeah all i wanted to make clear is that you should never influnce your betsizes on your cards. At least preflop any more or less careful player will notice that! You won´t get it though

All - in. It will take out some of those fish, but unfortunately about 30% of the time you will get a idiot who thinks his 9 10 suited looks nice, call you and beat you with 2 pairs or a flush !! That is worst case senario.

GL anyway

GL to you all.........................

Not the most experienced player by far, but AA can be tuff as to how you decide to play the hand. Lot of things to consider, position, other players pre-flop calls or how many players are staying, etc.

If your the BB or SB and only a couple players are in maybe allin would be a good option. If several players stay and none raise probably 3x BB raise to see how many stay to see flop, then based on flop will determine how to play out hand. Just a lot of variables/scenairos can occur which would determine how one plays AA or any hand is what I've learned from reading.

I must say I've asked the Mobsters here at BRM forum a lot of questions over the past few months and everyone has great advice so your asking the right group of individuals. Good Luck to All!

Heres my playlist for A-A early in micro and freeroll Tournaments. First 5-10 minutes, when the all-iners are everywhere holding god knows what?
Best seat for AA is UTG?...Why, I can bet 3 or 4 BB and measure the action.
(1) If it gets back to me with 1 all-in I'm in heaven I,ve got the best of it and it isn't going to get any better in poker.
(2) It gets back to me with 2 all-ins my odds are still better than even. Both player have high cards, or lesser prs. Usually 1 has A-K,or A-Q, the other has a lesser pr. K-K, Q-Q, J-J, maybe less. Either way I,m still a favorite.
(3) More often it gets back to me with 2 callers followed 1 or 2 all-ins. Since the callers are now behind me and are an unknown factor I must assume their maniacs and will call the all-in the tears start to flow as I toss my bullets in the muck. Oh well it only cost me 3-4 BB and I'll live to fight an other day.

How: Same tournament First 5-10 minutes, when the all-iners are everywhere holding god knows what?
On The Button.
(1) I'm looking at caller and raisers when it gets to me and the SB & BB yet to act. I have no idea what action will transpire, or how many player will see the flop. So I'll be firing both bullet in the dark. this is a turkey shoot and there's a smaller chance my bullets will hit their mark giving me the wish bone. Best 2 call small bets. Fold to big ones.
(2) If a miracle accures with 1-2 limper in front of me now I have to reraise pot pray for three folds raise pot on the flop and I'm heavily invested which I don't like early in a tourney.
(3) Praise be to Ala, its folded to me on the button and I'm setting my trap. I raise 2-3 BB. I get and both call (why not their priced in). Flop comes rainbow disconnected Blinds Checks I raise 1/2 pot (come on little fishy)...Big RERAISE Oops what now? Bye Bye Bullets. Bye Bye Chips.
(4) Praise be to Ala, its folded to me on the button and I'm setting my trap. I'm getting paid. I raise 4-5 BB, Both blinds fold, I win the blinds with the best hand in Holdem.

Leaves me asking myself; Self why do you play this game.
Oh yah, I LUV it. Heart
