Its hard when AA goes down but i think you are only about 80 / 20 when you go up against 22 so by that you should (if the law of averages is all its cracked up to be ) win you next 20 times... Of course is does not work like that as the sample is very small but you know you cant rely on AA especialy if its in a multi way pot, in fact if you are in a multi way pot with 2 other players and they have 22 and 66 (you hold AA) you have a 66 / 33 percent chance of winning.. Go 4 up with QKs and your odds go down to 53 / 47........... you see what i mean Unluck Dont give up lol

You were not lucky. But it depends on the way you played your aces. If you made slow play and did not raise pre-flop it is not unnatural. If you did that it is more unlikely but it can happen. AA is not my favourite hand because it is a hand hard to let go!

You have AA a lot of times... This hand has been very discussed in other BRM forums and opinions about the way it should be played are many and distinct so, in order to pass through that AA tilt you are having, the best you have to do is to center your mind on probabilities when in AA again. According to those, you now have a lot to win in the future! If it happens, dont forget to tell us!
You must have done something wrong ,to lose so often with Aces. I know this CAN happen, but its very unlikely, if you play it right. A preflop raise is a must and the best thing would be to have just one caller or maybe two.
