Posted by shokaku: Golden rule in poker: There are no golden rules in poker. The game is to situational.
Play AA and AK hard preflop. You want to play a big pot, espacially with the rockets.
I agree about golden rule However I rather slowplay AA than push it (of course if there were no raises before). But I would reccomend you to take a look at the first part of shokaku's post when you think what to do with AA

What Ive noticed on fulltilt low limit nl tables, ppl play mostly very aggressive poker on fridays/saturday evenings (surprise ) Just wait there then for good hands and wash them out. That works for me. Normal nights I just play loose and aggressive poker when ppl like mostly to fold and wait AAs

i have made for myself this rule ... stay calm , stay focus and don't call when i am not ready to go all in with my cards ... the only thing is that it actually work and that i am able to make a stak but that i can not keep on playing that way because i love to take a risk to much and sometimes it is a risk to much ... wit AA i prefer to raise 4 - 5 times the BB and see what the flop brings before going all in ...

i've been playing for several years now, and I can say from my little xperience that's if I keep my cool and wait for a good hand, I ALWAYS win - I mean get to the 1st place. And try not to think about how much is at stake, I loose my concentration and start being nervous...not good.
