Limp in with rockets heads up or 2 ppl in the pot hoping that someone hits top pair on the flop, Never limp in with more than 2 other people or you are asking to lose. If you let people draw, you will pay for it. Don't be greed and take the pot when you can.

AA are the devil

I wouldn't commit too much money to them unless you get pushed, cause they won't be expecting AA, and when you have to call they will know why, also if they catch a pair or two pair and that third ace is out there you will get a huge payday every single time. I love to slow play big hands especially in freerolls, cause you know someone with act behind you or before doing something stupid. Its the best hand preflop, but just because that is the case doesn't mean it can't lose it just doesn't happen as much as KK QQ JJ AK KQ or QJ. the stats are going for you when you have AA just know that if you get called all in with five people your chances go down but you still have the lead.

You have to play rockets with all in. It's a toss up but half the time your lucky.

I have never won with pocket aces slow playing an all in bet is the best way to go. there is a better chance that some unpaired with  king queen or a smaller pair will call.

Evil AA

Postby Hety1990 » Sat Oct 29, 2005 6:33 pm

Pocket AA Are Hard To Play because you can get total folds with an all-in and you can get total calls with all-in same for any hand i guess but its harder to lose with pocket face cards anyways so ya pocket cards confuse me :D

A-A = GO ALL IN, if you don't you are asking to lose.  I'm sorry to all you slow players out their, but u have to protect ur hand and your not by slow playing pocket rockets.

Love the rockets and depending on my position at the table and how the other players have been playing will depend upon how I decide to play them.  Noemally I win with them though.  But you do have to remember that they can be beaten and fold when that happens.

AA can seem like the hand is yours but it can easily be trampled by 2 pair or any other hand.  I would advise most new players to be careful with this hand, it seems like i have had many bad beats holding the rockets.
