      Every time I hold AA/KK I either only pick up the blinds preflop or someone sucks out on me/they flop a set. My biggest losses come from AA/KK. What should I do?

      Hello phidelity,

      I don't think so that your biggest losses came from KK or AA, you might just have not played enough of hands then or you have a leak in playing them. But this way as you played is totally standard nice hand! Just don't let you get angry or anything if you pick up just blinds with AA or KK. At least you got something. :) If you look from other side, you could lose a lot now, since you are mad and tilted because you didn't get any more with AA and KK and will start playing your B-game or even C-game from now on, just don't do that! Continue playing solid game and you will earn your money. Good luck!

      Best regards.
