I call, but thats why I hate AA sometimes. It handicaps you. You feel like you have to play it to the showdown. Someone could easily have KQ there. Just learn not to fall in love with hands. Its hard to do, depending on the money, I probably call here too. If it was for my entire bankroll, then nope, I fold.

Play or Fold

Postby Extry1994 » Sun Nov 13, 2005 5:17 pm

You can't base your play on results of your last play . . . most desisions in poker are based on the same as all gambling; "are the odds in my favor?".  Of course in poker, sometimes BETTING can improve your odds (not always, not often).
  A-A against a raise and a re-raise is dicey, you got to ask yourself; "Am I already pot committed?"(i.e. am I already mortaly wounded by the amount I have already bet); "Does one of these jokers aready have the straight?"; "Are they each drawing at the straight, one with a jack, one with a 10?"(each with a outside chance of making the flush); and what about two pair?  Your REALLY got to ask yourself; "Are these guys SERIOUS?".

As "almost" every professional will tell you DO NOT FALL IN LOVE WITH PPA as after the flop they are ONLY A PAIR.  If you see a potential straight or flush on the flop then by all means fold them.  There are always other hands to play.  But if you fall in love with them and go all in and lose you can rest assure that there may not be other hands for you to play in this game.

with that kind of flop I would have to say that I hoped that I would have folded-yet sometimes i get to stubborn--but with the raise reraise and call prior to you it had to point out that at bare minimum there was 2pair if not a set ahead of you -

Had a similiar situation in a live tourney only with 2 callers and i folded after turn with my pkt A's and it was a good thing turn gave the one guy a flush and the other a st8  that fold kept from being the 3rd person out in the tourney to making it not only to the cash but 16th overall

In this case, 3 raise or reraise or call, it means warning, at least one has the better cards than you, fold is the correct action.

I know it's tough but after the reraises I would have folded remember AA is just 1 pair but because we all know it is the highest hand by itself we usually think we are going to win with it for example just last night I had AA at the final table another player raises 5800 so I thought about it for a while and I didn't want to call 5800 and not flop anything besides that was most of my chips so I go all in and end up losing to 3 kings he had KJ offfsuit. Aces bite sometimes play them carefully.
