Usually lucky. Other times such as when I put the villain on AA pre-flop and just call the raise and hit the flop I feel validated as a decent player. I guess it depends on the scenario. It's always a good feeling in either situation.

It hurts when it's a good buyin tournament and the tournament was very advanced, in any other situation it doesn't cause me anything, I see it for what it is, it's part of poker, I just have to keep working so that it doesn't hurt when it hurts
Nothing at all , I will crack AA and my AA also can get cracked too so in the end of the day everything will be balanced!
AA preflop don't guarantee to anyone a 100% win , that my mindset about this specific hand and for poker in general!
When I get it in behind, I am mainly focused on evaluating, if I made a mistake. In this situation getting it in with ATs seems fine, beacuse apparently 3 players were sitting out, so it was effectively HJ vs. CO, and the effective stack only around 10BB. After that it just is, what it is. This time we ran into the worst possible hand for us to be against but binked the suckout. Good for us, and if it was on PokerStars I might send the opponent some tissues to dry his eyes
My Aces are cracked so many times, I learned not to overreact it. Same goes when I have a better combination at showdowns but still loose. If chips left for me, I say I 'll make it back. Otherwise I'm moving on.
Yeah )), this is a sore topic for all beginners, immortal pocket aces )).
I was like that once, and I also believed in it, until I learned poker math and what the odds are.
Pocket aces are just one pair
To me iy happens very rarely , most of the times , almostalways I would dare say , I lose to AA . Most of the times oher RNG wizzards find the way to crack my AA , so I tend to play them aggressively preflop and ready to fold on very wet board with many players in the hand and a lot of interest by them . If the crack happened with preflop shove , I want to see why , was it a coincidence/bad luck , or sth else was going on ....
I feel guilty and lucky when I crack aces based on a bad read on my part and the person with aces plays them well. However if the player with aces small bets them I draw out because of their bad play trying to trap me I don't feel guilty at all when i draw out on them. I think to myself "they should've played them more aggressive and I would've folded before drawing out".
The software elimination algorithm works well. Usually, it is a setup and the person having the aces gets whupped. Be careful with those dogs. They can lead to a quick exit. Recently, I had AQs and lost to a larger bank with AJ offsuit, Several hands later, I had AA and was eliminated. I call it PEA, poker elimination algorithm.
