I sometimes lose the AA flop on the flop, but most of the game I try to play aggressively, make big raises or reraises preflop or flop so that there are less players left in the hand and my AAs can play normally, I rarely fold on the flop when in the hand 3-4 people are involved and the card is lying pair on the flop is not in my favor then I can sometimes fold AA, but most of the time I'm playing the flop!
When you receive a strong hand as a pair of Aces, the immediate expectation is that you should play aggressively and have the chance to win a big pot. But if on the flop a pair comes in no matter what the player makes a reasonable bet I am wide my easy one
Never fold AA, this hand only loses to a bad beat.
There's actually a lot of hands AA could lose to that wouldn't be considered a bad beat. If the flop comes 9TJ all suited and you lose that hand to a flush or straight that's not a bad beat that's just you not having the best hand. You need to remember that AA, even though it's the strongest pair, is still just a pair and a pair is is still second to last in terms of overall strength. Don't get stuck overvaluing AA especially in positions where your reads are telling you AA is clearly beat.
I have great bankroll management, it started at $0 and it's still at $0
When the flop is very scary (ex all suited and no Ace is of the same colour plus I see a lot of interest for this board) , or when I see a lot of action for a board paired from more than one player , especially when they check raise me out of position , etc .
I mean there are scary occasions , and if you are not pot committed (you have enough chips to move on ) I think the best way (to handle it ) on the flop or the turn/river is the getaway , get away from this hand
well if i limp in with them and theres like 4 callers i would fold to kkq or qqk or jqk cause someone has a set or a straight draw or a straight and there coud be possible flush draws in there also so i just check it down or fold!
I won't fold them at allunless the bets start getting crazy after a good lookin flop if the flop looks basic no open or flush draws then I'm going to be very aggressive which might make them back down but I love beating someone that pulled that pair of kings on the flop and that's the best thing out there and I burn them with the AA
clearly there are a lot of very weak players here. never folding AA or rarely folding AA on the flop?
I hope we dont mean fold without action before anyone else bets because I am not folding anything like that ever that is just silly.
However AA is not invincible and there are situations where it should be folded this will depend on the texture of the flop as well as the action of your oppenants and their tendancies.
there is not really a cast in stone rule you could have a very safe slop like K47 rainbow for example but i find when you bet you get called and then a guy who you know is really tight and wouldn't raise there with a hand as strong as AK suddenly puts in a big re raise you know your beat rare situation but ive seen this before and been right.
conversely you could have a 910J all of diamonds when your holding two black aces be heads up the guy shoves on you but you know he plays a lot of hands and is always trying to bet big on dangerous boards specifically against you and you end up calling and been right again experienced this to.
However whilst there is no cast in stone rule for poker what I would say is there are general assumptions which are usually correct and if I am in a mutli way pot with 4+ players and the board has 3 to a straight or 3 to a flush and I am sitting there with an over pair which does not have a draw to a straight or flush in this spot and I am looking at a bet raise and shove I am likely to fold in this situation.
you should not get married to your hand in poker and your always just dealing with odds probability and variability in luck. you were lucky to be dealt pocket AA this does not entitle you to an automatic pot win. you may be unlucky with the flop. poker is about assessing your now likely position and proceeding as best from there not about been unable to accept your starting hand which had better odds then your oppenants is now likely second or third best.
I might fold versus an aggression or multi way pots , if the flop is super wet , something like 10d 9d Jd , and you don't have the Ad , this is one of the though situations , where you have to think about folding according to your opponent reaction.
I fold AA on flop if i see a nut flush draw and somebody bets big on flop,unless i have a dominate stack and 1 of my aces is the suit of the flushed flop then i will call unless the bet is too large.If a small pair is on flop i will make a continuation bet because im pretty sure that my preflop bet was not called with small cards,but if im reraised with a large back raise i will fold.
It's completely situational. If you believe it or not everyone has that (little voice) in your head that will sometimes tell you that your beat. Some choose to ignore it or even admit it's there but it is and it's usually right. After reading the reply's it seems like most people here are stubborn about holding on to them? There is nothing wrong with that however being married and pot committed to hand is a good way to get knocked out or felted really quickly. If I truly believe I've been out flopped and am way behind I'll fold them to a 2,2,3 board. They call it gambling for a reason and situations like this is why. If you can learn to treat aces and Kings on the flop the same way you treat 7/2 preflop you will be much more dangerous player who will out last a large tournament field most of the time. Two of the greatest quotes ever are totally relevant here.
"You will never lose what you refuse to put in the pot"
"Any two cards can win"
As always it's a marathon not a Sprint if the situation isn't favorable fold your hand and wait for a better spot.
If the flop: K-Q-J, suited flop, high pairs - you can think about the fold. In this case, everything will depend on the reaction of other players at the table. If the opponent on my raise answers 4-bet, then I will fold AA.
good question, it may even be easy to fold an AA pair, an ace pair loses it for 2 pair, a crack or straight and flush, if the flop gives you that reading and the opposites are aggressive, the fold can be a good option, but a pair of ace always gives us the sense of invesivel, this feeling sometimes induces a play donk

2 Queens or 2 Kings on the flop would definitely make me consider folding it - usually you'll be ahead but always just check the flop and don't be over confident - if you see a 3 bet/ 4 bet on the flop, I would be wary - people could have hit unlikely straights and sets - in these places, I would try and use the information about the opponent to gauge how likely it is they have a huge hand.
I folded pocket aces a couple times. It was rare but i did. I fold when I see a pair on the flop/river sometimes because the opponents can have 3 of a kind. Sometimes i fold on the river when its close to a streight or flush.
I never fold an ace on the flop, because I'm go all-in pre-flop (not always). I still have not tamed that hand. Therefore, if the stage of the game is very important or the opponent is very loose, then I fold aces immediately as soon as the cards are dealt.
