I think AK is better than AA, but AA is also a good hand.
Good luck all.

I have always thought both were equally great.  That is until I was taken out of my last 2 out 3 tourny's by the AA, I had A(suited once).  I hit my K but obviously not good enough.

I totally see what we are saying about the AA giving us too much confidence, I've had to lay down the monster a couple times, but I had to learn the hard way to start doing that.

good luck all

jewelstar wrote:AA is suppose to be the best starting hand. Well according to most starting hand lists anyway. I believe that the AK is the best starting hand, especially if it is suited. You have the posibility of a straight and a flush as well as two different top pairs. AA is good but is limited to the posibility of a top pair,  trips, or a 4 card draw to a straight or flush. Anyone see this too? I guess in my  view it much more versitile. AA is by no means a bad hand.  :lol:  :h

When I read your post I laughed. It is the same to say 67 is better than pocket queens because I like this hand and looks good.

By the way did somebody watch the EPT (in Austria I think) where Joe Hachem lost with AA to AK? I was amazed by Hachem's skills especially his mind reading. He read his opponents mostly  in every hand and played very good poker. And now about the hand. Flop was K Q 7. Joe made a large bet and his opponent went all-in.  He got trips on the river but Joe didn't actually lost so many chips  because he was a chip leader ( finally got busted).  That was actually a very exciting hand for me.

Well, I'm not a great player or anything but, I absolutely hate AA as
starting hand. Too many times they get beat by lower cards or two
pair. The ONLY way I play them now is all in !!!
I could be wrong, but usually if I don't do that, they get beat.

good luck

I agree AK is often better as a starting hand.  Those AA's are dangerous pair and will often make you loose big time if you don't watch out...

My opinion is that even if AK suited is a great starting hand AA will always be for me the best starting hand...
