Posted by DaCapo71: 33 percent of opponents dont call versus AA, other 33 percenr are suckouts. And with the rest 33 percent you can win. Yes with 66 percent of all AA hands we can't win.
Wasn't going to join in this thread but.... You better read up on some odds DaCapo. That is just WAY off.
33% don't call is just grabbed out of thin air really. AA will win against 1 opponent 80% of all hands in the long run. Against multiple opponents, odds go down fast. Those 33% suckouts and 33% wins are just plain wrong.
Really surprised there, but it's total nonsense. Read up on it for your own good if you like sound advice.

AA is a high pair.. i prefer to raise this hand but not to go all in.. i will not spent my whole bank for this hand.. for me, this hand is a monster.. but, no guarantee we will win with this AA.. this is why i love poker .. GL with ur next AA ..

It only seems that you are losing, because you remember losing with AA to total crap. Im sure you just dont remember winning, because "its normal" to win with that hand. And to get you chips in the middle preflop with pair of aces is something id like to do every time i play. If you are talking about freerolls, then dont even bother to think, what are they thinking. AA, chips in and double up or leaving game with short time to wasted.

There are good cards to have preflop no doubt about that, but there is no guarantee they will win the hand. You have the best odds preflop, but at the end its the hand after the flop that wins, so expect to get the share of the losses too.gl
