I have tried playing A's both slow and aggressive and usually wind up not winning. I am beginning to hate them. Someone called them cards of mass destruction and I am not sure which way they mean????? Right now I am just calling with pocket A's.
The best way to play Aces is pre-flop. Punish people who want to see a flop. If you allow them to play their junk and an Ace comes on the flop, they will fold every time when you shove. Charge them to see their flops. They must be paying you if they want to luck you out. The times you win that match up will greatly overtake the times you lose! The expected value for aces is surely positive.
I try to play them really aggressive. Maybe I should be a little more relaxed when I have them. I just want the whole to scare off limpers every time. I don't want my ace's to go against people with low cards. EVER.
