      which would u rather play, 22 or AA, a sample of 3 tells you nothing, played over 10 thousand times AA is the best hand , there are cards I don't like seeing when shoving with AA... ie low suited connectors 45 / 56, but against any other pair , lets go... to add my best losing streak with AA has been 7 hands.. number of times won with them ? .. seems we get hung up up negatives.... surely long term they are money makers.

      they have about 80% eq against any hand preflop, but I win with aces 90% of the time, along with many other players.

      The reason is that Hero's AA often can't improve, but we usually take postflop equity away from our opponents if they were setmining and missed on the flop (they had 10% eq and folded) or if we make them fold a gutshot on the turn (again about 10% eq) or a BDFD on the flop (about 5%eq)

      you relax for all we know he was limping in a family pot or something, just becuase you got dealt AA doesnt automaticaly mean your going to win, although i cant say much poker table ratings have me at never losing with AA but i dont play much NLH so...

      Ahhhhh ... where would my winnings be without ppl misplaying AA ... there's not many things I enjoy more in poker than beating a guy who just limped AA.

      When I was new to this site, I found these threads interesting... but by now, after seeing one of these whining threads every 2 days or so, with someone complaining about the unfairness of poker based on their pathetic sample size... god, it just annoys me :tongue:

      It's a statistical game! Get with the program! Poker has a lot of luck, in the short term, and short term can mean quite a lot. Either you can deal with that, or you can't - in which case, go learn medicine and be a doctor :) Not much variance there!
