If you can't push them out. Then one of two things will happen, you will have a huge chip stack, or you will post in the BAD BEATS forum
lol you have AA and are worried too many people will be all-in? That's wrong on so many levels. Check the expected gain when AA is all-in against 2, 3, 4, and 5 opponents. Give them appropriate ranges or give them ATC. I guarantee you the more opponents that have all their chips in, the more money you will win on average (exception: I believe the difference between 7 and 8 opponents may be slightly negative, but you would still rather have 8 than 6 opponents, you just would rather have 7). Sure as more people are in the pot, our pot win % goes down, but last I checked the goal of poker was to win chips/money, not pots. If you have a 50% chance of winning $50 or a 20% chance of winning $1,000, which would you pick? I'll take #2 thanks.
