:) Hey Shaze.

You got some pretty unrealistic answers.  One of them is illegible because that person is trying to use PC language and I have no idea what he said. :D   Of course, position dictates your action, first and foremost.
Generally, though, why would you go all in automatically and then only collect the blinds?  Not wise.  Solution:  Bet 3 to 5 times the big blind.  That will get rid of those who want to see the flop.  After the flop, if you did get a caller, your normal game rules apply.   Good luck.   :D  8)  :wink:

AA is bad luck for me always when playing online, live it's a totally different story.

Don't agree... Not the only way to play it...
If you slowroll them, you might get a later raise(if you're in an early position) to get more value, where even still a call will do you good.  Bet the flop big hoping your opponent caught something out of it and with any luck, you'll get the action you want.
In a later position, raising always seems to be the case so they'll not necessarily think anything of it, but it has to be not so obvious as well...
(No raise to 800 if it's 15/30 blinds)...If you had action from callers, maybe one or two will stick around for a flop...

Aces aren't about getting all the chips in; at least not right off.. It's a hand that one needs to be patient with and one must learn to MAXIMIZE thier value...

I have to say that with AA you really need to be careful. If I don't go all in pre-flop, I usually get beat with something really lame.

AA is the best starting hand so to say you would rather have J, 10 or Q,10 is absolutely rediculous. if you play it textbook, you should win. now if the flop comes 789, or all the same suit and u aint got it, then you need to bow down to a big bet or re raise. becuase chances are u will lose. i see people call no matter what the board, could be J,Q,9,8 and 3 spades, and they still think their aces are good? learn common sense then play poker.

exactly the reason why you should go all in, in the first place, letting someone limp in with anything else is dangerous for your pot :) whether it's just the blinds or whatever, a lot of ppl are less likely to call all in with JQ or 10 J  or anything else...if i have a pr even & someone goes all in & i don't have AA i will likely fold

This reminds me of a saying i know its better to win a small pot then lose a big one.  So with that in mind I make a larger than normal raise i'll say four to five times the blinds, unless im short stacked then all in.  come flop make another larger than normal size bet an expensive feeler bet but its still better than losing to pp jj or queens.

I agree that playing it aggressively pre-flop is the key but you also need to know your opponents.  If you are at a loose table where a huge bet would get you a call, maybe you raise 5 or 6 XBB...if you are playing tight players, maybe 2 or 3 XBB and try to maximize your profits if you win.  As far as I am concerned, no hand is worth an all-in unless you are short stacked or you know something in your opponents that makes it a good play.

If the flop helps someone, REMEMBER that A,A can always be laid down just like any other hand, although I know from experience that it isn't the easiest hand to lay down no matter what the flop is.

some ppl can slo play AA but in 99% of times if you don't go all in with AA you are setting urself up for disaster...you call & someone will call with a low pr or lo cards & hit everytime, at least if u go all in & everyone folds you get something, & even if i lose going all in i'd rather lose that way than get outdrawn by trash
