How should I play them in early middle and late stages?
I consider monsters:
The first three are pre-flop monsters, the fourth might be a monster that eats you instead of your opponents, JJ can get you in a lot of trouble, and the strength of the rest is heavily dependent on the circumstances (position, blind amounts, number of players, etc.)
If you're expecting to double up most or all of the time when you get AA, KK, this isn't very realistic. Depending on the flop, you could be way behind with AA once the cards hit the board as well.
Also, if your opening raise is too high preflop, it can discourage action. I see this a lot, for example blinds are 20/40, and somebody raises to 400 in EP, he might as well tell everyone in the chatbox that he has AA/KK. If you've got AA, you definitely want the AQ/AJ type hands to come along for the ride.
