For me yes, no other hand is better and does not compare to AA.

lets say we are at 50 people left and I am in a table where all sorts of all-in phenomenon is going , where everyone is just going crazy every hand is called, then it might feel like a dilemma when you have aces with at least 5 people are calling your shove lol

I mean what other hand would even comparable to AA? It is the hand you feel most comfortable playing in any position/situation.

Statistically, yes, it's the best hand. Using a odds calculator would restult in this response. But it doesn't mean that you should always play it until the end, even talking about pre-flop. On tournaments early games, for example, if its a regular one, pre flop big bets with Aces may be a bad choice, and going all in when too deep can throw you on a big variance journey, so I sometimes make a profitable fold in this situations with AA.

Without a doubt pre-flot is the best hand, and then its value may decrease depending on the community cards

Pre flop is definitely the best hand you could have. In the river it is not always like this.

We know pocket Aces are the best starting hand in Hold'em. But is it the very best hand?

what do you think?

It's the ONLY starting hand that requires no community cards to win.

It is the best starting hand. Not sure why you would create a discussion beyond that? Are you looking for a favorite hand, second best hand, hands that beat A A or just simply asking and answering a post?

Pocket aces are indeed the best pocket hand. But even if you have aces, the chances of winning against a pocket pair are 22 about 80%

In other words, 2 out of 10 times you will lose to a lower pocket pair. Also, besides the pair, there are many other combinations, such as a flush, straight, full house, which may already be on the flop.

Therefore, it is necessary to foresee all options for the opponent's pocket cards!

AA is definitely the best hand in poker. But when I get pocket aces, I always think about how much I lose with them every time)

the best hand will be counted after the card on the river, your aces may not be the best there, so how do you know where it is the best before the flop and the flop can also look good, but then I think they are inferior to many hands:)

AA is the best hand preflop but it does not guarantee that you will be able to take a big pot or that you will win the hand. The vast majority of the time when you have AA it is very likely that you will win a small amount of chips or lose a large amount of chips, it all depends on how you play, the cards the other players have and how the hand develops.

Yes, AA is the best hand pre flop. But of course you're going to lose many times with AA, this is poker.

Before the flop it's the best hand, but we know that we depend on all the cards.
