      Can I ask you what to do with AA.

      Tody I lost 3times everything with AA (about 100$). I am making stack for a long time and than i get AA and lost everything.

      Onetime OK, its poker. But everytime???

      Is there something wrong with poker internet rooms? Sould I fold AA?

      Haha never fold AA! Don't be put off by a streak of bad luck with your aces, in the long run they will pay off.

      Me too, AA cracked 3 times consecutively. But I've realized that having AA is more profitable. I love AAs.

      I go with Ellfish too.

      AA is the best possible starting hand as everyone knows, but it is not invinsible and sometimes we have to evaluate our hands on the flop or the turn..

      depending on villains VP, PFR, how loose and passive he is, also how much risistance you are facing.. and sometimes its best to go with your instincts..

      But most of the times AA will bring you the goods.. :)

      Hi guys,

      In fact, AA is the best starting hand, however, it's not a made hand. ;) Therefore any two pairs will beat it. We never want to fold with AA, but sometimes we must do it. Make your decision depending on the situation. ;)

      Good luck!

      Of course, by never fold AA in my earlier post I meant never fold it preflop.

      I suggest you post the hands in which you lost with AA in the example hands board. That way the hand judges can better analyse if you did something wrong, or if it was just bad luck. AA isnt a guarantee for success and once in a while you will lose with it. Thats just the way it is. Is simply about minimizing the times you are putting in money with AA when you are already behind.

      Best regards,

      I slept it off and now its better:-).

      Thank you for your replyes!

      I dont remember exactly, but:

      (0.1/0.2 tables)
      1st situation:

      AA vs 88 :
      me: raise 4BB
      he: allin (about 30$!!)
      me: allin (about 27$)

      turn : 8
      OK, nothing to do -> bad beat

      2nd situation

      AA vs 7Js :
      me: raised 4BB (0.80$)
      he: call
      flop : 4 7 J
      he: check
      me: raise 1.6$
      he: call
      turn : Q
      he: check
      me: allin (about 17$)
      he: ...waiting.... call (about 14$)
      river : dont know becouse I am crying :-)

      last situation

      funny u mention it. first i lose 100$ going allin with 2 pairs on the flop against 2 aces, and on the river he gets another ace.
      Then i go to a new table, pick up pocket queens, raise, someone reraises, i all in, he has aces again, and so i lose again.
      and everytime i get aces it's in BB and everyone fold even the SB. aces suck

      Today is definitely not a good day for the Rockets, at least not on PartyPoker. I've got mine cracked once, cracked them myself twice, and saw them lose another 3 times.

      Overall, it's my winningest hand when it comes to Win %, and second most profitable hand overall, beaten only by Pocket Kings. :D

      A pair is not a made hand. Two pairs or better is a made hand. However, AA can be considered as a made hand, but personally I don't see it as a made hand. ;)

      Good luck!
