yeah you should be playing a2-a5 and having those hands in your 3b range preflop.

6 max I'll loosen up and play suited aces, but 9 max I'll let go a6-a8, sometimes play a9s as a bluff , sometimes a 4b fold. Otherwise it's good to play suited aces especially in position.

Definitely A2-A5 as mentioned, sometimes the rest, probably not the best playing but I do like suited cards :D

I guess it's not too uncommon a trait to overplay suited cards? Or maybe it's just me... :p

Yes I do like to play A rag suited as long as it for the right price, because it most certainly can get me in trouble. When I play it, I play it mainly to get the flush.

I play these cards by suit. It depends on the position, but I always try to play it pre-flop, unless someone raises me a lot and what is my stack.

Yes. I even play unsuited Ax in late position. It's all about balance. If you only play high cards you become too predictable and therefore easy to play against.

I play those cards in cash games if I’m in a good position with few players in the hand. I usually play more these type of hand in tournaments than in cash games.

Good day!
Yes, I also play hands with suited Ax, especially A2-A5, as they have good equity and there are many ways to play these hands.

There are many moments that I don't play those hands, it always depends on which way the bets come, if I sense that someone has ak for example, or else. It depends on the reading of the players, it is not emphatic, I never or always play them, it totally depends on the moment of the game

I love suited Aces. I am not shoving all-in with them, but i think they are worth getting to the flop at a reasonable price. Nut flushes are so much more valuable than straights and medium flushes since it takes a boat to beat them.

This is about as good as it gets and we know right away whether we have a shot or not. If we get two to our flush on the flop, our probability of hitting our nut flush are even better than hitting an OESD. Now that is power.

Good luck and God Bless.

Yep! Especially if suited. 6 handed you almost have to.

Hi

Hi Bald86. The only way I play A/rag is when I can limp. I do play A/rag if they are suited if it don't cost to much to call and that would be in late position. I say this because it seems like if I call in early position, there will be a raise, and more than not I will have to fold, but if not I get stuck out there when I hit a pair my low card. That might not make since, but I tried. GL

I will usually limp with A-x suited in the early and middle stages unless there is a raise in front of me. Then it is time to fold. Of course I sometimes mix it up to keep my opponents guessing and will sometimes enter with a small raise or call a small raise just so my opponents can’t pick up any betting patterns from me playing certain hands the same way all the time.
This hand is usually a fold for me approaching the bubble and even when into the money I am careful not to play it to any significant raises.

A small suited Ace is great for me only when I am in position and I have established tight aggressive table image. It is also incredibly easy to fold preflop. I never mastered raising with it randomly. Something of a trash hand for my play style.

I love this hand when playing deepstacked

It can cooler all other suited hands, and in live games more players aren't capable of folding a flush... so that's a 100% equity situation I like to put myself in position for.

Here's a bit more on my strategy with these hands
