Well, I think it would depend on how quickly they raised and what your position is at the table.  Have had pocket rockets bite me in the but more than once.... gotta go with your gut.  :lol:

Reraise him back to see what happens then, he still can just have over pocet pair, thats smaller then yours.

It is all flop-depended.

And of course - opponent dependent. How does he bets, what does he bets, what does he raises. It is either a pair or two pair or even may be a flush draw. Sometimes it can be a set(though, it is often slowplayed), if there is 2 suited cards on the flop.

it depends on what the other guy is doing.  look at his facial expressions, see if he's twitching, look at him, look at his cards.  it all depends on the opponent.

either reraise to see if he is bluffing, or if you feel that you are beat, than just call. if you're not gonna call with top two pair, than what are you going to call with? you still have outs going to the river and the turn

i know im new to poker,but what pair did the flop bring?
if he limped in or was the BB then its possible he's got anything but if he had to call a BB or a raise my theory is he's got big cards so if the pair on the board is low he's missed and the AA will be good,
or is that why i lose so often?lol

The age old question, what to do with rockets if youve been re raised. I think many different questions arise here. First off, position, position, position; of the re raiser and yourself. The hardest thing to do for any player is lay down a pocket pair, especially aces. I would look at the pot odds first and foremost. How much, in comparison to your chip stack, do you have invested in the pot, and how much return will you get on your money. Folding costs you nothing, but calling can cost you everything.

Position of course, depends on the flop as well. Depends on the player. It all depends thats why you must pay attention to all players on the table before you get into a situation like that.

I would be less worried about flopped trips if the raise comes on the flop, most players will flat call and "set a trap" as Mike Sexton has taught them.

If the raise comes on the turn, much more likely to be trips.

I have had a lot of luck with AA but I have gotten burned a lot with AK.  I used to think that was a great hand but the last 4 or 5 times i have been taken out with it...What a bummer.
