The thing about AA is that you have to make it expensive for other players to play with you.  I see people try to slow play this hand all the time and it often leads to disaster.  The thing is, just like every other hand, it is beatable.  Too many people get AA and just expect the pot to be theirs.  The truth is, you still have to play poker and you have to earn the pot....no matter what your hole cards are.

I think that the best thing to do when you have a pocket pair of aces is to not panic. Dont take the lead of the hand just follow and wait the river.

If you get pocket aces go all-in from the start. This is my advice. Actually just check and get everyone involved in the pot. This way you can actually make some money.

It all dependson the tpe of game you are in and the time in a tourney. Early on you will certainly get a call for an all inbet and have good odds for doubling up.  But if you are close to the money is it worth the risk going all in and going out.

i hate pocket rockets when i am in a freeroll.
you have too many people playing 27 os  and small pairs.
and to boot pkt aces are only about 36 % chance to win before the flop.

this hand is great but once again you have to play poker as there are 5 more community cards to be dealt that could screw you over. i think it's always important to raise constantly though, even though people might fold. it's better than losing to crap cards who flop trips or straight cause you let them in free.

Some good advice to be sure, but I've noticed one thing:  everyone has something different to say...

I don't think there is any right or wrong way to play AA, the bottom line is to win the pot.  With that said, there are so many different variables in any given game that there is no set way I would play them.  Stay within your strategy for that particular game, and remember to change up often.  For example in a freeroll, I might slow play the flop, then turn it on at the turn.  I try to avoid the all in if it's the beginning of the tourney, because there's ALWAYS more than one jackass that's willing to call you with his 73 and 72 off, and one of them will beat you on the river.  Not quite every time, but damn close.  

I'm not a big fan of going all in early in the tourney, because it takes any skill right out of the game, and leaves it all to luck.  I, personally, am not willing to chance my entire stack on 100% luck early on in any game...usually.   :wink:

Depending on position, I usually just go all-in with aces...  especially if i've went all-in with anything, within the last 5 hands or so... :)
