This is a discussion on AK or KK: Which Do You Prefer? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; it may seem obvious but... i may disagree with you. i'm less disappointed with kings when they run into any Ax with an A on
AA'S of course i don't know statically how much times you hit an A over K but i win more with AA than kings .That special moment that you shove the ACES and opponent shows his Kings and its an A on the flop what a relieve!!!
I prefer AA to other pairs! I will not feel guilty if I go all-in whit them! When the dealer gives me AA, I feel as if I have wings and I will fly before my other opponents, so I call them 'wings' in my own way! Lol!
I do not stick to a specific type of card, I usually prefer to play with those that are worth more, in this option AA is better than KK, day by day I will play according to the board and the other players, so I will opt for having a range of cards according to the situations that arise.
its pure psychology the feeling inside we feel when our KK monster is defeated by ace rag..what we do not recognise is that the A is forever the overcard, to feel entitled to the win with KK is naive because we do not hold the best starting hand..give me 100 hands of my Ace rag or AJ AQ AK v AA and i will show you a happy player more often then not against KK.
I lose more often with AA especially against low cards that hit a pair on the flop. KK is easier to hide, but if an ACE shows up on the flop you might as well through the KK away cuz for sure somebody has another Ace to go with it and beat you
Preflop: AA. I’m always positive about getting it all in pre with aces, when i look at aces and someone shoves I feel like I have a super power ready to be unleashed. Post flop play, I think I actually like KK better. If you flop a set with KK you can still be against an opponent who believes they have the best hand, whereas if you flop a set with AA it’s hard to get action from weaker hands since there’s an ace on the board. Also, I have no problems folding KK post flop if it looks sticky, but AA can be a death sentence.
i guess everyone forgets AA loses one out of every 5 times to other pocket pairs... and its so hard not to hate them for it. when i have kings, i can easily get away from aces preflop when people know what they're doing. when i have aces, i'm reckless and always trying to get it all in preflop.. and i guess call it karma but sometimes it hurts
and yes, this is obviously a weird question but when i was in vegas i saw those souvenir card holders.. you know, the big coins basically... and right beside the AA one there was a KK one.. and it got me thinking....
when i start thinking about poker, i like bouncing my thoughts off of other people. i didnt buy either of them, but if i did i think i may have cowboyed up... just saying lol
They are just pairs, and it is difficult to win with just one pair. It is a kind of overvalued condition. I see players with AA or KK raising and raising and the board has a flush or straight or a full possibility and then there it is when cards are shown!!
