HMmmm... if AA is only worth buying the blinds, what cards do you use to really play poker with? Pkt 7's ? A,Jo ?

AA is one pair - nothing more. Why not use AA and KK (2 top starting hands in poker) to make some chips with? Or does buying the blinds keep your sessions profitable?
Yep, all-in pf with KK certainly removes the tough decision of having to fold them after the flop. That way you can risk ALL your chips before any cards are seen and you can go home to pack the bags since you lost the farm betting it all preflop and that Ace hit the board anyway ...
