Yes, it's the best hand.

And after that comes Q10s.

Pre flop yes, you have a better chance against any other, so it's important to bet as much as possible pre flop.

Best starting hand is not equal best hand.
Before flop it is the best hand, sure, but after flop comes, it can be a nightmare hand. After 3 more cards come on flop, villain can have a lot of option to beat AA, even a straight or a Royal flush...

Pre Flop sure...But there are many ways to play the Aces wrong...So in my opinion u should be able to fold them any time in conclusion to the bordstructure... ;)

There's no doubt that AA is the best preflop hand.

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

what do you think?
Preflop there’s no contest AA is the top premium.
But the best hand is any hand that is on our range. The best hand is the hand we can play well in spite of the outcome.

You just answered your own question and then asked the question again 🥴

Obviously AA is the best possible hand you can get. Just depends on the table situation. For example if your just on the bubble, have a decent stack, get AA and someone goes all in who will put you all in.... Then are you really gonna risk playing it?

Pre flop, no doubt! But the hand is a composition of several factors

For me, any hand is the best hand as long as it wins.

it is the best starting hand preflop .....so yes ? it is the best hand lol

but there is a difference between your favorite hand(s) like hands you often win with or can play more easily with ....and actual general best hand which is AA

for example your favorite hand might be J-Ts because it is easy for you to play that hand or because you often won with it . this hand for example has many possibilities to make you get the goodies on the board ....flushes , straights , even straight / royal flush .

however if you put J-Ts vs AA preflop then AA is ahead of course . AA is ahead against ANY other hand preflop . thats why you want to raise and reraise preflop as much as possible

At the start, as you said...there's no contest...but at the river?...there are 5 cards to be revealed after preflop...and if you are facing any pocket pair...chances are 50% you will lose the hand...that's why all in can go either way with AA...however, you are likely to win more than 50% of your hands...because people don't believe you have them and they call you. Hope all this makes sense. :)

Hello according to the tables it is the best hand but you can lose against any other hand. In fact I have lost many times with AA in hand

AA will always be the best starting hand, but it doesn't guarantee anything. Lately I'm losing 2/3 of my hands with AA.

I hate this card, it is the reason for my loss many times, it gives you confidence that you are the winner, and you are surprised that someone owns a small street buck and wins and you lose your money

When a hand start, of course that's the best hand, but when the game continues it easily can become a weak hand
