You have to play aces even on the bubble. Right?
AA is never a coin flip preflop. Is more like 80% most the time. I'm never folding AA at bubble, I'm looking to double and get in position for deep runIf true bubble and you are not a short stack, or busting a shorter stack, why throw 'n' hours work away on a coin flip or even 30% chance of being cracked. Treat it as a raise and no callers, dang and move on.
depends on the tournament, if the first paid prize is interesting (I folded them recently on a stars reward tourney, first prize was 3,30, not bad for a freeroll). I get dealt aces soooo many times on the bubble and get kicked by another pair hits set or a straight/flush, that I'm sure they deal good cards on the bubble more often, to speed up the game...I would play AA and more if I have few chips, if I have enough chips but very carefully, high pairs are dangerous in bubbles, you just have to see how the rest of the table is playing, if the chip leader is very aggressive or not , are several factors to be able to determine how I would play
