This is a discussion on everybody folding preflop when you have AA within the online poker forums, in the Online Poker section; happens very often . you hold AA and raise and everybody autofolds :D lol
it is almost creepy
The surrounding players feel that you have good cards. For example, make 3 bets from a UTG position with suited connectors and when everyone folds, then show your cards. You will be called more often after this audacious act. Getting the blinds is not the worst thing. That's when the opponent gets an unreadable set on the flop, it's already trouble and ruin for AA.
This has happened to me a bunch too. So how aggressive I start out playing with pocket A's all depends on my table position. If I'm 1st up to bet then I might play slow, see if anyone else is attempting to claim their hand as worth a preflop bet. But if I'm in one of the blind positions, or my turns at least just further around the table, then I guess I'd prob make a decent preflop bet. I find people fold less often as long as I'm not the 1st or 2nd turn in line. But there's been so many times (just earlier today!) when I'm big blind with pocket A's and everyone folds so all I get to win is the money small blind folded. .. but like some people mentioned, a win is a win, even if it's disappointing to get potentially really great cards just to get to throw em away lol. (This happens the same with pocket K's just as much to me). And to be honest I usually end up with bad luck and lose when playing so aggressive with pocket A's, if 1 person calls me, its often still their cards that'll hit something more than just the 1 pair I've now ended up with lol. So sometimes maybe its just better to make everyone fold lol Of course tho it all just depends on the current state of the table I'm at!
it doesnt just "seem like it" ....it happens often to me
especially in cash games and especially when i am raising from early position
baldy has AA utg . raise 3bb
If you have Aces, you block already 2 of the strongest cards.
And playing from UTG is complicated too, you have to calculate with an outcome like this, even 3-betting Aces are not a mistake at all.
If you have a bad run, and trust me, when you wake up with having Aces on Big-blind and everyone folds...That is painful!
Not so really often, depends from value of your bet and position. When I bet 3BB from UTG pretty sure couple guys after me call. Reraise from button or SB,BB maybe just one. If you go pre flop all in sure they would fold if no any premium hands. Fold is nothing, the worst thing is when your Aces cracks after the call .
The worst thing is that when you bet strongly in the starting position, everyone folds. If you are in the final position, face 3-bet, 4-bet, shove with 2 or more opponents, and if you bet too small, someone connects on the flop with any two cards and it was already over your chance to double up.
Something to consider, for those of you who think it's creepy that everyone folds when you have Aces - the reason in many instance is that everyone else at the table has bad hands (or more likely to as you have the best starting pair in Hold'em).
I see no issue, just move on, play the next hand and focus on making good decisions.
Somebody asked me what my favourite hand is, and I said "The one that takes all your chips".
If I shove and you call, I'll show.
