re: Poker & Playing Ace/rag.......
The way i see it, they usually only pay off if they are Ace-low rag. I usually only play ace-2 through 5 suited or unsuited. 6 through 9 only suited. Mind you, this never happens more than 2 spots after the button, unless sb or bb, in which case ill limp or check. And never to a raise. But they do pay off for me, because its something you can get away from easily. No problem folding to a reraise with an ace on the board if you have ace-3 off.
