AK OVER AA

Postby Clower » Thu May 18, 2006 7:02 am

I THINK AK IS A BETTER HAVE TO HAVE THAN AA.
THE REASON BEING IF OPPOSING PLAYERS HAVE POCKETS
TOO SUCH AS 3S 4S 7S  THEY CAN EASILY BEAT U WITH A SET IF ANOTHER A DOESNT HIT.
WHILE AK ESPECIALLY SUITED YOUR CHANCES R BETTER OF GETTING A FLUS= OR STRAIGHT.. BLIEVE ME POCKET AS DONT ALWAYS BEAT
OPPONENTS 90% OF THE TIME
IVE BEEN BEAT BY 37 53 98 ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS W POCKET As

Just recently i had AA and was up againts the old AK and i was able to get my stack all in pre flop, not too dificult when your againts AK, but i was pretty happy to begin with, saw the flop, was pretty happy with the cards that fell, then the turn and river came, and it took me a second to realize, he had gotten a flush with his king!!!

I do agree with you that I'd rather have A K suited against a low or middle pair instead of A's sometimes.  The only reason I say this is that you have a greater potential to win the hand if your opponent hits a set on the flop.  As you mentioned, you can hit a straight or flush.  With A's, you're limited to catching a two-outer to win the hand.

I would always take AA over AK, and if you are playin in any of NLR games you can understand why! AK is just a draw, and you still need a hit on the flop, it can be great sometimes if yo uare suited, but AA its a premium hand, and I most cases I dont need help on the flop, to win the pot!

Anyone in the right mind would choose AA over AK,  When i see AA i get the chills and it feels so good.  I am the greatest poker player in the world, and if you dont believe me come play me!!!!!!!!

arguing on this actually means you kinda scramble probabilities in your mind somehow..just check an online odds checker..both against suited and unsuited.suited can be a very powerful hand but you still need that flop with at least 1 card of your color in it, and not even with two of them you are not THAT near to a flush hand

I like AA for a starting hand but I always overplay them I bet so much the whole table folds. I have been beat so many times when I slow play them that now I over play this hand. I am trying to find a good raise that is big enough to keep someone in but not everyone. Any suggestions????

pocket AA's

Postby Wharleas » Sun Jun 11, 2006 5:51 pm

These pocket AA are dangerous, but then again they are the higher pair in the deck.  Very hard to fold these babies, but I have seen myself fold them after the flop more times then I can count.  I would agree that playing KQ suited is often better and the chances of winning is much greater sometimes then pocket AA's.

But then again, luck is part of the game,  AA is always a good starting hand depending on what falls on the table...

AA

Postby Aftenteen1987 » Tue Jun 13, 2006 12:11 am

I swear people are reading my mind when I get AA. Even if I slow play the ____ out of it everbody folds on me lol. Either there running a cheat program or they have ESP I dont know  lol. Anyway I prefer the AA to AK anyday.

It really doesn't matter

Postby Broand » Fri Jun 16, 2006 4:44 pm

It really doesn't matter if you have AA or AK if someone hits a triple....I lost a hand the other day with AA and I hit an ace on the turn....I couldn't believe it....Flushed out!

well 2nd topic on this subject...
learn how to play pocket aces.. big raise preflop is usually the advice..depends on who u play at the table..if u know they wont call or if u wanna trick them or smth, makin them think u got like aj or at ....its unarguably the best pocket pair you could have dunno what this fuzz is all about. ak looks nice but it's not aa, how about kk that better than ak too?! if u stop even for 2 seconds to think about that..u have problem or smth, u fear when u play poker i think..no room in poker for fear..especially online..so..

Postby Brin1984 » Sat Jun 24, 2006 8:19 pm

I would take AA any day, the only reason I like AK is because it is an easy hand to lay down when you know you are beat... it takes supreme effor for me to lay down AA even when I am 100% sure I am beat
