Page 6 - This is a discussion on What do you like better, AA or KK? 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
Of course, two pocket aces are preferable to kings, but it all depends on the situation. If you bluff your opponent to throw a pair of aces on a dangerous board for him, this is the height of skill. I've had such cases.
Obviously most players prefer AA over KK but I get the feeling that many feel less pain or disappointment when they lose with KK then when they lose with AA. So the question maybe what hand are you more disappointed in when you lose.
