Something I've notice since playing online, and probably why my Aces hold up 90% of the time since realizing it.
I hear a lot of people complaining about their Aces not holding up, and I just thought I'd share an observation of mine. Most people only raise 3 to 5x the BB, or get hyper aggressive and go all in.
Online, a raise of 5x the BB is not respected by 70% of the table! Hard to fathom huh? But think about it, how often have you raised with your Aces only to have 3-6 callers and you end up losing to the guy playing 9/3 or something like that?
So what do I do? Well I'll tell you like this
BB = 30 ( I raise to a min 240) 50% of the time it's folded around 40% of the time I only get 1 caller 10% = 2 callers. After the flop I bet the pot nothing less.
BB = 100 ( I raise to 800) everything else same as above.
As you can see I raise a min of 8 times the BB. If it is raised before me I raise it to a min of 6x their bet.
Simple enough and may not be how you'd play them or be your style, but It works for me and I can honestly say that my Aces stand up 9x out of 10 when I play them this way.
Take it for what it's worth too you and good luck on the felts
