Pocket Aces are supposed to be the best hand before the flop in poker, so I either bet a lot and reraise before the flop so I can get as much as possible but still win the hand.
With me if I give them the possibilty to win the hand with a wired pair(s) It will probably happen.

It depends on the quality of the game you are playing in. In wild games, you are probably best off just raising like crazy before the flop, in tight games that is likely to get you just the blinds. :)

Pocket Aces, are one of those pairs where you think YES, I've got this one in the bag so you bet a lot and even when you know the other guy might have better you still want to call him because you don't want to waste your Pocket Aces. I think there unlucky for me because I normally lose with them. :(

AA is the best STARTING hand.

Although AA will win the majority of the time against any lesser hand (all the rest), it is still possibly for AA to lose.

Too many people stick with AA until the end, which is a mistake, especially when you are in a large multi-way pot with straight and flush draws out on the board.

In order to be succesfull with AA, you must be capable of folding it post-flop.

When people say they usually lose with it, it is usually a sign that they are not playing them correctly.

Always raise or re-raise preflop. You want to be facing one opponent when you have AA.

Pocket aces are one those hands you remember losing on. You always remember losing with big hands like that. but you don't really remembering winning with them unless you made a 4 of kind or it was just a huge pot.

exactly. people who complain they are bad luck and such, most of them probably won more often on pocket aces then they didnt. (unless they played it stupid)

its just that when you lose with them, you remember it so well. But if you win, its like "no big deal"

chicubs also hit it right on, ideally you wanna be facing one or two guys with A-A. Dont raise it so little that you end up facing 5-6 people. Cause then even with pocket aces, your under 50% likely to win in most cases. Even if you only win the blinds, its better then losing. Dont slow play them by just calling the blinds.... unless your Gus Hansan, and your THAT DAMN GOOD!!!

I usually don't play pocket aces....

I don't like them.

Yes , they are the best Pocket cards you can have but my first 8 times pocket AA i lost them....

I am playing them not so bad i think and if necessary i fold them.

What i never do is go all in with them. I lost twice against 2/2 and K/8....

It depends on the players and the size of the blinds for me. If it is in the beginning of the tourne of something, i would sow play, later on when the blinds are huge, i wouild push it cuz even if everyone folds the blinds are enough!

pocket aa

i have been burnt some many times with aa its not even funny. alot of people will go all in because they have them and they normally walk away with their heads bent in shame because they were so stupid. people have told me when they see i had aa ooo you should have went all in preflop with aa and i say why so i can lose it all and get out? when i catch a good hand i wait and let the others bet. like yesterday i had pocket 5's, 5 k 5 flopped, i checked the whole hand and in the end some idiot went all in and i called, when they saw what i had then they cussed me for not betting.i feel if you have a good hand u dont have to bet like a wild person, because someone else will and because u didnt initiate the bet, they feel like they have the bettter hand.i normally just call, that way they dont have a clue as to what i am holding. and i usually last a lot longer than most people.

AA is very good. However, if you've lost, you've lost, and you can't ignore the four hearts on the board if you've got As and Ac just because you've got pocket aces.

You've got to be careful.

Bet big preflop to get it to heads up, i find when I slow play and get four or more callers ill lose. It seems one of the 4 callers will draw for there flush or straight and hit it.

You mustn't slow play with a hand like PP Aces. If you have hte hand early in a freeroll tournament, you usually should go all in, just in case a dumbo calls you with hand that beats you in the long run. I usually have bad luck with PP aces though.

pocket aces are scary but you gotta play em hard, i've won alot with them but also lost everything cuz i get all excited and go all in, and someone with something stupid like 8 2 calls me (cuz it's a freeroll and who cares) and they win, man that hurts....
