After the flop you must play this hand very careful.If draw cards appear,such a straight or flush you must bet to give incorrect odds to your opponent,maybe somewhere between the size of the pot and 2 pots.Its important not to give a free card to your opponent to beat you.

totaly true. The hole AA hand is a hand where you need to bet much (3 bb at least preflop) and the same counts for past flop. Often I find my self betting 2 bb and some crazy people at my ONLINE table call it with cards like 8 10 and hit 2 pair on the flop. You need to make sure that such things don't happen!

Really apreciate the advice!

Well, the only problem is if he got flush/straight on that same flop, and you got like 3 of a kind aces.. You must first realize how your opponent plays, then bet/don't bet and don't give him anything that he can use against you.

I have had so little success slow playing AA that I usually try to force a 4 or 5 bet fold or all in preflop. If they just call, I try to force a fold after the flop.

yeah all in preflop with aces IMO is the best , Whenever I have aces someone cracks them with two pair or a set.

if you play AA wrong on pf ... but you must see on you opponents and you will see his cards. no limp on raise only 3- bet and no slow play....
if you see what opp has a stronger hand- control pot

So what you say is, by pushing AI you want to chase away people with worse hands.
Read this again and you'll realise how ridiculous this sounds.

Besides, it's not an answer to the original question, because if you push AI pre, there's not gonna be postflop play.

The best I come upto.....if you think you're still ahead on the flop....bet for value without giving opponents correct odds to draw.
If you think you're already behind on the flop, try to get to showdown as cheap as possible (or even get rid of them).

In general ofcourse, action postflop also depends on what action there was preflop.

the game is aces

Game aces on the Micros or Freeroll,absolute does not guarantee that You will not move any cards. Aces need to play before the flop , of course if You are trying to set a trap,but it's a risk, but in General, everything depends on the situation and as You go card.Sorry for my English .:heeeellll

I would wait until someone bets and then go all in.. if your in a good position yeah, but all in preflop is not the best choice sometimes. winning blinds with aces suck

No trap with aces , raise big and if flop offers a straight or a flush draw to someone, bet big and hope they don t get there. :D

Aces lose value for every street you fail to improve. Pocket aces on the river might be okay for a smallish pot but you don't want to get it all in with only a one pair hand. Get those crap hands out before the flop. You don't want to lose to trips with one card in the pocket or a random low two pair.

AA postflop becomes really tricky with draws emerging. Key is to not give a free card, know your opponent well from his previous plays, take position into account and always remember that you can always lay it down.

Basically AA it is just a couple...till river many combinations can appear, so yes betting is an answer!

i agree on no limping. just raise, raise and reraise as much as possible before flop. post flop, i generally bet half of the pot on dry boards and try to get an idea what my opponent has because i think the most difficult hand to guess what your opponent has, is when you have AA

Ive noticed most online pros will try to get AA, AK, KK (if their stack is bigger than opponents) all in pre flop if possible, Im not saying thats correct but thats what ive been noticing.

I should also mention it depends on your opponents play style and if you think you can trap then slow playing might be the way to go.

I tend to try and get it in pre-flop most of the time with AA, I've been punished too many times in the past for not doing so!

I no see too much flop with AA because i allways push allin preflop better if others fold than they beat me with much weaker hands QQ, KK, AA push allin is the best way to win and maybe with JJ and 10,10

Take care with the board, after the flop AA is a hand that you must know fold.

As for me I always make big raise and after this as usually if sb calls me I'd prefer pushing all in.
Try this strategy.
