Statistically, you can't do any better than being delt pocket Aces. You'd love to have them every hand for the rest of your life!
If you are sure someone will raise ahead of you, definitely consider calling and then reraising a bunch.
The last thing you want to do is have three or four dudes drawing against you cheaply with 5-6 suited and Q-10, etc. There are just too many flush/straight/two-pair possibilities that can kill you. Remember, you wont have a straight or a flush with those aces unless lightning strikes and you get really lucky.
I am forever seeing guys getting cracked because they slow played aces to a guy (or two) who flopped four to a flush, or straight, and got to see more cards for the minimum bet. You gotta make them pay a LOT to play.
Best case scenario is aces against one, maybe two people at max. Three people scare me. Best case for scenario for aces? You catch another ace for trips, right? Well, that doesn't beat the straight or the flush that everyone loves to draw to.
