      Hi veriz,

      Looking at the board should I raise instead of calling at the river?
      I was petrified of the possibilty of flush.

      Thanks,
      cpers

      Hello cpers,

      Please go back and read the beginner articles and if you still don't understand them then try re-reading. Pretty much the worst play you could pick with AA.

      Preflop: There is no other play in this case than raise the hand.
      Postflop: Raise flop? Value? How you gonna get value if you don't raise preflop, don't raise flop? Try asking yourself such questions... Guess there is not even any point to talk bout turn & river.

      Best regards.

      Ok, I understand what you're saying, it's my bad.
      It's pretty stupid not to raise AA. It's a bad habit.

      Thanks for the harsh opinion, and please hit me more if I made a stupid move like this.

      Thanks,
      cpers

      I am not usually so harsh actually but with such a play I really have to. Really bad play. :( But at least you do understand now. :)
