But just playing AA as a plus is not enough. We should always make sure we win the most with aces when we are in front, and of course avoid comparing our AAs to sets, flush on the river, etc. So, as with any poker hand, let's start from the beginning, which is preflop. AA is always the nuts preflop, so play it appropriately. I mean open-raises, three-bets, and if someone gives you a chance to compare preflop - of course do it. Many players try to play AA tricky by limping reraising or setting traps by calling, which is not optimal in most cases and ends up minimizing the value of your aces.
