I'd have to disagree. I say get a lot of money in preflop (this will almost surely push out connectors and small pocket pairs) and pray for no K or A on the flop.
If there is, represent it unless there's a bet out already that is representing it ( they probably have it if they called your big preflop bet ). If you get reraised, fold (they may have 2 pair, trips or A+kicker ). If you get called proceed with caution.
If you get called, you have to decide whether the opponent has the Ace or not. I evaluate, is he the type of player that over plays an A? Is he on a draw because he plays draws a lot?
Then, I may fire a medium bet. If he reraises, fold. He's almost definetially not on a draw, because a player on a draw wouldnt reraise, because he assumes you have the Ace, and not your QQ. If he just calls he may be on a draw, or have trips that he's letting you fire at. Now you can see 4th st. If there's no draws that accomadte KQ, QJ, or J10, he probably hasn't made it. A big bet will push him out.
Now, if he has the A, he probally won't check to the river, same if he has trips. So if you get check raised, raised, or reraised, look out. If he checks, decide whether you want to push out any draw, or wheel in a lower pair that he's chasing.
That's my thoughts. I hope that was coherent. Please point out flaws, bad ideas, etc. I'm not a pro and I have a lot to learn here.
