This is a discussion on Losing with AA within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; I have never been able to reset AA, even realizing that I am no longer in charge, how often did you drop AA
It's really hard to fold aces,especially if you have already put a tidy bunch of chips in the pot!!! But if villian starts playing back hard at youlook at the board. MIGHT HE HAVE THE STRAIGHT OR FLUSH THAT HAS JUST TURNED??? Don't throw good money after bad...just fold
Hard hand to fold unless the board is wet. No real scare cards that can come considering you're holding two of the four best cards. Folding AA is something that comes with time. Unless there is four to a straight or four to a flush on board, it can be hard to get away from. I'd advise ALWAYS raising AA and always 3betting it vs a raise. If you are facing a lot of aggression from an unknown or tight opponent, you can lay it down as well. Always try and put your opponent on a specific range. Say you are on the button with AA. UTG +1 raises 2.5x BB. Action folds to you. You 3bet 3.5x the raise. Villain calls. Villains range now consists of pocket pairs and suited broadway connectors(KQs, AQs) with the occasional suited connector(78s, 9Ts). Flop comes Jc Kc 4s. Villain checks. You bet. Villain check raises you all in. What do you do? Villain's range is now KQ, AK, KJ, JJ, 44, and possible flush draws that he is playing aggressively. KK would have most likely 4bet you pre-flop. If you fold here, you are losing money. You are still ahead of all flush draws and all top pairs, and only behind 3 hands, one of which(KJ) you can improve on by hitting another 4. If you are getting Aces all in in spots like these, you are putting your money in good, however you can still lose to flush draws, two pairs, and flopped sets, but the odds are in your favor.
Basically, never slow play aces(unless you know player tendencies or have a short stack behind you to try and induce an all-in) and bet big enough to give your opponent bad odds to see another card. Be very careful on boards with flushes and straights possible, and always try to put your opponent on a specific range. This is important not just for playing aces, but for every hand you play.
It depends on a lot of factors. I think you must reduce the number of players starting from the preflop and fold it only in very dangerous situations like 3 or 4-bet or straight, flush board. Sometimes the all-in from preflop could be appropriate. Fold from preflop ?? It is hard. I even can't imagine the situation when I would fold this hand. Maybe with 3+ players all-in from preflop, I would fold this hand. But I think too rarely ))
When I first started really learning the game of NL Texas Holdem, back in 2003. My Brother told me to go all in with Aces or Kings. Now that I think I know how to play a little better,(haha), I think going all in with AA isn't such a bad idea after all.
Always depends on the situation. If you're limping in with AA you should be able to find a fold almost always on an All range board to the river. IF you're betting enough preflop to be Heads up Post Flop , Unless its blatant I don't see a Fold. It's always the situation , Always hear constantly people are getting cracked but the first is "well I had aces and I just called" . Online However I've Folded Aces way more times then I ever would in Live games
It's hard for me to fold AA on all the streets, so I play aggressively on preflop. The main essence of the game with pocket AA cards is that the fewer opponents remain in the game, the greater the probability of winning.
