depends on a lot of factors me I would try to play it hard if had chip lead. If not I would play it softer usually at the tables people i play they respect my game and do not get a lot of play back with aa kk hands. Is what it is. Rather take the small pot then a loss though.
I do a standard raise same always pretty much when playing with any starting hand. Is same if is jack 2 or aa or kk honestly. I dont play jack two but just saying for me is position first then viable hand a bet if someone bets im raising here I dont care of their history or tightness if I run aa to my kk thats the lumps you take period. Yet I dont overbet to chase them out so if I they raised blind id come over say 4 times not an all in they reraise or all in I call that simple they dont come over top I feel stronger. People on cardschat will slow play the aa though all the way down and sometimes you just take the loss but looking at hands I never see no way out of them honestly a majority of the time. Jack high flop they bet I all in they got aces im just toast is what it is
