I know where your coming from with the quote bellow.. but there are situations where that won't help...
The last 3 times ive had AA (3 diff progs).. i have raised a LOT pre flop.. the flop has been pants... someone bets.. i go all... they have notihng.. then get something on the turn! Its bad play on the other persons part but its happened so much...
In a $$$ ring game sitck ur money in because for money people wont call with crap for a lot. In free rolls / sng's / multi table tournys your screwed... I lost a $10 sng cos of that.. i was 1st with 5 to go and got knocked out in 2 hands.. the first one i had AA.. and someone called an all in with a flush DRAw and got it on the river...
Now.. i will check, call, call, call. That's it. Only if A comes out on flop will i try... But i now limp and play to the flop. Play them like 22. Thats the only way imo to avoid bad beat!!!!
Worse is JJ.. killer hand./

Too many people slowplay before the flop.
You can slowplay after the flop if you hit a set or rags flop.
If you slowplay preflop and rags flop, the blinds or other perpetual callers might have hit their hand or are drawing to hand that can beat AA.
Also, in order to win with AA you MUST be capable of folding them in certain situations. Ex. 3 Spades flop with a mutli-way pot and you have red aces or, three cards to a straight (8-9-J).
