This is a discussion on Ever get AA and KK in BB and everyone fold out to you? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; Ever get AA and KK, or a exceptional 75% or better hand, in the Big Blind?
Then ... everyone folds out to you and you collect
Yes of course. In fact, you would realize that this situation happens very often, I remember that at first when it happened to me I felt that it was as if everyone guessed what I had in hand. But really, that's just the way poker is. Regards.
Usually, the pocket AA or KK in the BB, with table folding to you, min profit, happens at the beginning of a MTT, where you want to use the high pocket pair to start your stack. Also, I get this scenario when I am close to the bubble, really counting on that one profitable hand to get me close to ITM.
Just if you have aces, then the probability that someone has an ace with something is quite small, but after all, an ace with something or some pair is often opened, and if you have aces, then the probability that someone has an ace or a pair is often small, so everyone throws off their cards )
Yes it's one of the reasons why I try to slow play it and try to catch somebody by surprise but them at times somebody cracks them lol. Gotta love poker anybody can get GOT
Ha I had to quote this one, it's too good! Anybody can get GOT!!!😁🤔 However, for me this literally never happens. Everytime I get AA or KK while sitting in big blind someone always pushes all in at which point I just call and take their stack with a giant smile on my face!!!
(Btw I am so full of bologna. Of course everyone folds in that scenario for me frequently and then I get all sad... Also the next time around I'll be sitting at BB with a 7 2 and THEN someone pushes all in! Lol!)
Of course! It even happened a couple of times in one tournament. This happened when a short stack, when nothing came for a long time, different conditions were. Sometimes it seems that everyone suddenly saw your cards.
Ever get AA and KK, or a exceptional 75% or better hand, in the Big Blind?
Then ... everyone folds out to you and you collect hardly nothing but 10 in chips.
Yes or No?
After 100,000 real money hands in the past year and a similar number in home-games and freerolls, there are few combinations of hands, positions, stacks, pre-flop-action, etc. which are genuinely new.
Whilst I know it can be disappointing, with poker you need to not get too excited by a AA and KK. taking the blinds is still a win...and I'd rather THAT, than be up against 8 other shove-any-two-cards type villains, even with AA, and especially with KK.
I'm just as happy when people fold as when they call. Small win, no risk....Big win, bigger risks.
Doubling up is great...but I also like to focus on value. Some games you can shove AA and expect to get called...in others, a three-bet is like a bowling pin knowcking everyone out of the hand. I find it easier to generate value from straights and flushes than AA/KK -- certainly my stats arent that favourable towards AA and JJ...but QQ and KK are still money spinners. But that is probably because I tend to see a flop with KK and bail if an A hits.
When you start playing more volume and have multiple games on the go...it is even easier to be happy with a walk. No time to worry about what coulda-woulda-shoulda. Muck 'em and move on.
If you LIKE getting walked...I reccommend you show those hands to remind people what they avoided. But if you like the steal attempts because you like the nitty gritty fighting, just muck 'em and move on.
Yes, this is very revolting. It also happens that everyone runs away from your raise. It also happened that I got up from the table to solve something here at home and when I came back the AA was there and my turn had already passed....

Yes, it happens most of the time specially with AA.
And there is good reasoning behind that. In a deck of cards we have four aces and you are holding two of them. If other two are in the deck then how can you expect someone to enter the pot?
