      Apart from not raising pre flop could I have played this differently? Would it have made any differance in this situation?

      $0.05/$0.1 No Limit Holdem
      7 players
      Converted at weaktight.com

      UTG arderi ($4.72)
      UTG+1 FerPrior ($2.27)
      MP Valtol555 ($10.35)
      CO Hero ($2.00)
      BTN srjuka ($1.48)
      SB HASSBAK95 ($4.94)
      BB KlopekPoker ($9.62)

      Pre-flop: ($0.15, 7 players) Hero is CO A A
      3 folds, Hero calls $0.10, 1 fold, HASSBAK95 raises to $0.30, KlopekPoker calls $0.20, Hero raises to $0.50, HASSBAK95 calls $0.20, KlopekPoker calls $0.20

      Flop: 8 3 5 ($1.50, 3 players)
      HASSBAK95 checks, KlopekPoker checks, Hero bets $0.50, HASSBAK95 raises to $1.50, KlopekPoker folds, Hero goes all-in $1

      Turn: J ($4.50, 2 players)

      River: 4 ($4.50, 2 players)

      Final Pot: $4.50
      Hero shows: A A
      HASSBAK95 shows: J J

      HASSBAK95 wins $4.28 ( won +$2.28 )
      KlopekPoker lost -$0.50
      Hero lost -$2.00

      I decided to slow play as I was getting zero action when raising.

      Push preflop i think

      Well if you don't get action,maybe the table is too tight,then just switch tables,anyways sometimes your premium holdings don't get action,it happens

      This is a form of tilt.
      Preflop raise to $0.40. (after you limped, you should still push after the raise+call by the other 2 Villains)

      Sometimes it happens that you don't get any action with premium hands like AA/KK. But that's all part of poker. Just stick to the strategy and you'll be running up the limits in no-time!

      What do you prefer, picking up the blinds with AA or receiving a suck-out and lose 20BB?

      AA/KK should be played overaggressive preflop since they don't improve much compared to other hands. Therefore you want to isolate 1 opponent to gain a maximum out of your money (More customers = welcome ofcourse)

      Unfortunately he hits his Jack on the turn (~7%) chance.

      I can not advise you to do slowplays like this. It's better to win small pots then to lose big ones.

      If you limp and 3-4 players limp behind you, are you able to fold your AA on the flop? Or will you pay off your opponents?

      Was it your intention to limp/reraise preflop? Dont you think if someone raises behind you, he has a hand he probably would have called a raise with, too?


      Raise preflop.
