Why does AA loose 90% of the time? ive been beat by 2-2, 6-9, flush draws, and straights. I feel KK is a better hand. Does this happen to anybody else? And how can I improve my stratagy with pocket A's?

I have been beaten exponentially more times than I have won with AA. I vote that they be considered just marginally better than 2 7 offsuit. Aww crap! Confused

They make AA lose against bad hands(bad players overvaluing starting hands) ... in that way they keep the fish alive and the rake flowing in Blink

Don't overplay ur hand.
If u sense ur beat, lay it down, its only a Pair.

Dpn't go crazy preflop either .

AA lose 90% of the time? Sure you got your stats right? Or just a wild guess? If its the first, yes your right, work on your strategy.
For me this works: in early pos. I raise 2 or 3 x BB;( and when someone reraises I triple his bet) in late pos. 4 to 8 x BB. But it all depends on what kind of table I am at. And when called, its an easy laydown when the flop looks ugly and other players happy.

Well, I used to think like you too before. But that's what happens if you get alot of callers or don't play AA aggresive.

just fold AA and play KK Cool

AA is dangerous because as soon as you get it dealt your balls are swollen and your brain turns off due to being sucked out Big Smile

AA is only a pair.

there are 5 other realistic types of hands that beat you so if you see a flop with your AA take that into account.

i hear ya.....getting tired of being beaten by lower hands so - I play super aggressive and try to get others to fold....knowing I have the best hand possible at the moment and I would like to keep it that way......if you slowplay aces - you might as well just give your money away...

Yes, A's suck and I'm going to start folding them every chance I get and I would recommend everone else do the same too! When you get dealt pockets A's just fold them because you know someone is going to call and beat you anyway and take your money. Thumbs Up Big Smile

AA doesn't lose 90% of the time. Simple. (not to one opponent anyway, maybe if you're slow-playing or something)

maybe your are playing your aa well, never overestimate your aa/kk. or maybe you're playing with a lot of donks. take your opponents and their stacks into consideration while playing.

Just gotta be prepared to fold Aces post flop, so many people just can't do it.

I do believe that AA should be seen in the same way many people see JJ/TT i.e. A good hand but tricky to play.

There are many times where I'll play a hand, that I'd usually fold, just because I suspect my opponent may have AA/KK. So watch out for players like me Big Smile

It's very easy to play against players that only raise AA/KK so make sure you raise plenty of other hands too.

Often players that have problems playing big pocket pairs don't play them bad they just play all the other hands in a way that makes them so easy to read. So you'll have to look at your whole game and not just ask the "how do I play Aces" question.


sorry but the answer is just not that simple.
