It depends on the opponent. Value bet relentlessly for 3 streets of value against stations. Proceed more cautiously against regs but still be value heavy.

In super turbo tourneys, there is no time to mess around go all in.

In slower ones, raise standard 3 times and assess the flop first before you commit too many chips.

It all depends on the structure of the tournament, from the position of the number of opponents and their actions and playing style ...
Every time it's different 'AA' and, respectively, and they need to play in different ways, depending on all parameters

I prefer it this way. If they challenge VABANK, I will support it. If the bank only began to grow stout, sometimes I prefer to look at the first street structure. Maybe I'm wrong? I will be glad to any criticism

If you slow play you often get caught out hands that would have folded to a big raise really connect hard. Then all your "relentless value betting" turns around to kick your arse so your nose bleeds

I generally play AA pretty standard just raise 2.5 - 3 as usual and ship/4 bet to any re-raise. if im facing an early position raiser ill either 3 bet ( if stacks are deep ) or flat if im sitting at around 15-25 BB just to set up a stop and go on the flop especially if i think the villian opens wide. :bike:

AA depends on your opponents for sure. However if you have just sat down and do not know anybody at your table it is always a smart play to 3 or 4 bet your aces preflop. and assess your situation after the flop, but chances are you are going to be raising on the flop and every other street.

this is a dangerous hadn since you cant play it to passively and run into a low 2pair or even straight

Usually this is a raise of 3-4 BB. Then everything depends on the flop and the number of players who respond to the raise. You have to be careful not to lose a lot of chips. It's a big mistake to limp.

To maximize profit you should minimize the amount of players that play against it. I always play all in pre flop to avoid suckouts.

I'm opening for 2.5bb and flatting any raise if I just sat down at a live table. Internet I'm going to open for the same amount but 3bet any raise. After the flop comes there's a long list of things I'm going to do. After I've been at the table for a while its all going to depend on table image and how I've accessed my opponents

Depends

I play aces according to position at the table and how that game is going. Sometimes I will slow play and sometimes I will just go all-in as if I have a middle pocket pair. It just depends on how the game is going at the time.

I prefer playing it more aggressively and try to get as much money in preflop as possible. Then play it a little cautious because its only one pair.

Depends on the position.
Usually, I make double reraise if someone raises before or I usually make middle raise to control the pot on the preflop. Sad but usually I m not win with pocket AA ;)
So with that hand, I m not extra aggressive.
Flop I usually slowplaying. Depends on the board and depends on the opponent's type. I like check-raise )))

U will laugh but I really had situations when I fold AA %)))

Usually making bet on the tern. Middle. And depends on the opponents and board -- check on the river or all in on the river
Depends from the pot small or big

So, in general, I m very aggressive player but with AA I usually play as a fish a ha ha ha Not attack
Prefer to win smaller but stable with AA ))) Always sad to lose with pocket AA on the river when you. go all in preflop)))

But if its a tournament I can usually make 2 or 3 bet if the stack is small -- I m planning to go all in on flop or tern. The idea is making the pot bigger STEP BY STEP from more players. U always can go all in. Don t be fast. But you also need to think about risks!!!

it depends on the readings I have of other players, how I feel to play it, I usually bet the pot plus a BB, I am very unpredictable

Make a major raise or re-raise !! Kill small hands, further evaluate the flop.
Do not rush to go all-in

AA, KK, QQ as Hole Cards are like double-edged swords. They can win you a lot of chips. And, they can lose you a whole bunch of chips also. All three fall into an 80-83 win %, give or take 3% either way. So, 77-86%. Nonetheless, since I am really talking about playing AA for maximum profit. This is what I would do.

Double edged or not, AA is a sword you have to swing, knowing full well that aces can get cracked 14-23% of the time ALL DAY LONG in a downswing. Nonetheless, in an early position, I would bet 2.5 pre-flop. In the middle or late position, I would bet 3 and 3.5 pre-flop respectively. The idea in the early position is not to scare opponents off with an all-in bet. In either the middle or a late position, I would - given no bets are on the table - do as I said above with the idea of being fairly modest to keep players in the hand.

However, from any position, given the opportunity, I would bet pre-flop, raise pre-flop, and re-raise pre-flop with absolutely no hesitation - keeping in mind that going all-in risks all the chips, so try to avoid this situation. All-in is just an unnecessary and unacceptable risk which is best avoided where possible.

So, to repeat, for myself, anyhow, my normal way of playing AA is to bet pre-flop, raise pre-flop and to re-raise pre-flop depending on the chips in the pot and in my stack. My bet is that if you do lose on this so-called monster hand, the loss is probably going to be a big one in terms of chips, so try not to nuke your own stack. Ditto big win with lots of chips if you don't get cracked.

With bets increasing around the table and across the board, it does not take long before someone probably presses the all-in button. That is when the fun really starts, and it is when many players find themselves in a position they did not really want to be in, for example, with cards facing upwards - looking across the table at two aces, said to be the best hole cards in poker.

Keep in mind at all times that AA is just a pair. It is the highest pair, but a lot of hands can beat it, like two pairs or even trip 2's. Like I said, keep one eye on your stack and the other on the community cards. If you do not like what you see on the flop, turn or river - seriously - don't think twice about folding. Stack preservation, meaning hard-core bank-role management - is probably the only good reason for folding AA.

I will always play AA aggressively cause I ideally want to get an all in from one opponent two at the most. The more players that you allow in the hand by not raising just makes it that much more harder to win the hand. So I don't ever slow play AA

Bet hard in late stages and fast tournaments. Early in slow tournaments the amount of set mining is extreme and you should be careful

Regularly raise, X2.5 or X3, but if BB are large, you can raise X1.
Often when you're on a losing streak, and have had many bad beats, it makes you play harder, for fear of losing a bad beat, but this can scare everyone and not get action, you should always maintain a level of play, regardless of slumps.
