Playing AA/KK on a really tight table (cash)
This is a short idea ive had about playing with AA/KK on a stupidly tight table, generally micro limits 2/5 and 5/10.
If you dont raise with AA/KK you are letting all kinds of scary cards hit the flop. with KK if you let a bb check an Ax, suited flop its theirs, ace on the flop you will be crying all the way to the river.
On a really tight table however, ANY raise will make the entire table fold. So a check would be more appropriate?
The answer is no. If you have read the table correctly they will be limping in with good raising hands, if you just call/limp yourself, chances are they will "luck out" on you, as you will have to bet the flop, at least the pot size, re raised you dont know where you stand, and you could get caught.
Best advice in my opinion, is to ALWAYS RAISE preflop, it doesnt really need to be said tbh, but I have been debating this for a while, with regards to a tight table.
Its better to win just the blinds with AA/KK than to get beat, and having to make a "great laydown" on the river, best not to get to that point in the first place even if you are 100% sure the whole table will fold. there will be a time when your raise will be called, dont worry about all those folds, its not worth the trouble.
Happy to hear any thoughts on this..
