Blinds at 10/20 you get AA, what do you do? All In everybody fold, you bet low and all trash hands appear behind a flush.

I never hate getting aces. If I'm lucky, someone will raise in front of me. In which case I will put in a 3-bet and hope to get 4-bet and so on. When I feel like there is enough chips in the pot or I'm sure I have a player on the hook, I will go all-in. If it's not raised in front of me, then I will open with my standard raise of 3x + 1x for each limper in the pot in front of me and hope to get re-raised, so I can 4-bet and so on until I'm ready to pull the all-in trigger. I want to get them all-in, but I also don't want to let a bunch of luck boxes into the pot. So I don't want to just open shove and chase everyone out. Nor do I want to come in too light and encourage half of the table to call. But I would rather have everybody fold, than to have some chump get lucky and crack my hand.

Just because you get them ear is y does not you will not get them later on, there is no memory in the dealing. It's just a good hand whenever it appears.

Just don't treat AA like they have super powers. They are just the strongest hand pre-flop and nothing more. After the flop if you see aggressive moves by your opponents in super wet boards etc just be ready to fold them.

A pair of aces is always a good chance, regardless of the stage of the tournament. I am always happy if I get a pair of aces.

In this situation I try to make a raise that causes a re-raise in the enemy and consequently, resulting in an all-in hand. As it is a small and low big blind, it is not appropriate to give allin all at once, unless it is a very aggressive tournament.

Not sure I have ever seen this question ask like this. So we have the blinds mentioned and we know it is early. Just guessing not early in the day, or night for that matter but few hands into the session or tournament. Thinking there is not a lot of information for this scenario, but here it goes. It is never to early or late, huge stacked or short, out of position or late to have aces, rockets or what ever other descriptive saying you can come up with.

Guess there was a second part of this unique question? All in or bet low was the only choices? Well, early in, guess try to get as much as you can with an isolation move.

when the blinds are still low. I like to play my AA as if I were playing them in cash game. I raise in * 8 preflop to be called only by hands max JJ.QQ.KK.Ak. for the flop I bet the pot to be able to push the rest of my stack to the turn. on the other hand if I have a bad image at the table and that several of my opponents do not hesitate to call with weak hands. I do not hesitate to all-in preflop.

Even if it's better to have Aces later, Aces are Aces.

If it is a freeroll you can go All In and wait for a call from another player

I might raise to 360 or so to make them pay dearly.

I really only want 1 or 2 callers.

Why would they call such a big raise? They have put me on a big pocket pair and they have hope to crack me.

If I have 4 or 5 callers then I really have to be ready and willing to fold at some point.

Good luck !

I hate it. AA, KK, QQ in 80% of times i lose those games. I wish i can just gold that hand and ignore cards but i don't. At least i don't go all on anymore.

the question is poorly written, with no context of seat position or stack sizes or player tendancies it is impossible to say anything other than, get the money in asap

I hate getting Aces period in OMH. It's just a losing hand, unless you manage to scare people out of the hand, or your other two cards connect. I'm considering not even playing them unless I'm on the button, and then only if I'm on a lucky streak, which happens once every 3 or 4 months (7 - 12 months at the outside).

Yes, normally they will fold, but it is better to bet hard and not slowplay, because if not many garbage hands are going to pay you and you may end up losing the pot

Always consider kicking with aces; don't try to be tricky. But don't forget, pocket aces are just one pair

I will never hate it, the hand I like most is AA, I always want to take it. Of course, sometimes there will be boards that I will have to leave but in the vast majority of times I will win, so I always want to get them.

I play it with raise 10x blind that usually flushes out all rag hands if I get a reraise and it leaves a head-up play I'll go over the top of that raise enough to have the other player totally committed or having to fold. I have no problem at this point going head to head with AA
