A lot of players get a bit excited when an ace turns up as one of their hole cards. Everybody likes to see one, but a single ace is not as powerful as it may seem. If you are playing at a table with nine other players, the probability of you holding an ace and no other player holds one is about 25 percent. This is not a high figure and you need to think of your other card the kicker. If it is low and it comes to a showdown you will lose to a higher kicker. Do not play aces with a low kicker.

Some crazy players must think that A and any kicker is a winner no matter. I've seen it so many times all I can think is WTF are those players thinking when they call all the way with only A high. Then I bet they wonder why they lost the hand. Can anyone help me understand this because I can't believe anyone is that mental to put their whole stack on the table without even a pair. But believe me, I'm not complaining because those players help build someones stack.

A2

All As companions are not the same. first is the color if they are suited they may be very productive and also the A2 that gives you the option of a straight to 5. :as4: :2c4: :3s4: :4d4: :5h4:

I allways fold a hand holding A and a low card when playing a table with 9 players. Love playing very tight. For me it works just fine. I'm have more succes playing tight.

Even AA does not means that you win because it is just a couple. It is a matter of judgement

this only becomes valuable with position for blind steals with no one entering the pot and/or push fold charts when low BB in tourneys
