re: Poker & How many people say "i Hate A/A"?
I don't know if people are "more overconfident" with AA than AK, but instead are trying to desperately to slow-play their AA. When you get AA you get that little feeling, like this could be big. AK, at least for me in a tournament, is an automatic all-in bet. I don't even want to see a flop. I want to force out all the 33, 22, and KQ, and take the blinds right there.
With AA, I want to slow play, but like everyone else, they seem to lose a lot for me. Its like they can either make you a little, or lose you a lot. So, if I am not the big stack at the table, I will push all in. If I am the big stack, I won't even raise with them. If the flop comes low, it suprise the crap out of people when you flip AA with no pre-flop raise.
