This is a discussion on All in or waiting for other players with AA within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; You have AA hand. Do you have a strict rule, or you play by hunch? You go all in, or you wait?
Your position and your stack compared to others is very important so there's not an exact strategy, but AA is the strongest hand, and easily can lead you a double-up. As you can see I am not sure to share my idea, but if you not limp, U probably win it.
There are a lot of factors to be considered. It depends on what you are playing, position on the table, stack sizes, any reads on your opponents etc.
There is no strategy that applies to every situation - you definitely should not go all in unless you are short-stacked, the players left to act are short-stacked or you have other information that dictates that you should. You want to win chips with AA - not get everyone to fold.
On the preflop, you must use any means to get your opponent to play on the stack. On the flop, it will most often be a medium-strength hand, so it is important not to beat AA. A lot will depend on the position, depth of stacks, and opponents, so it is difficult to answer your question unambiguously.
I also play this hand before the flop very aggressively (do 3 beta 4 beta, and even an all 5 bet Inns). But sometimes, especially when a loose table image, or when there is a big blind alone can easily masking limped and sometimes even to just call a raise from the aggressive player! Just this hand is so strong and comes very rare that you can try to play it more creatively!
There are so many variables to discuss here. The short story is you should never be shoving a full stack with AA, the likelihood is that everyone else folds and you pick up the blinds. This is not maximising the value of your AA.
Depending on the game/table makeup shoving becomes a viable option when you're down to 15-20bb.
