      Hey guys,

      I've just started using Poker Tracker on trial - gonna try this and HM to see which I prefer. In 4k hands I've had AA 14 times and managed to lose $3.33 (167 BBs)! I'm gonna post all the big losses and would appreciate any tips (not going to bother with the ones that didn't see a flop).

      PS Zoom NL2. This one just happened. Gross flop but I have to bet I think. Not sure if turn is chk/fold or bet/fold, I went for the aggressive option :D . River is definite chk/fold. Grr.

      PokerStars - $0.02 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: 109.5 BB
      SB: 212 BB
      Hero (BB): 102 BB
      UTG: 314.5 BB
      MP: 129.5 BB
      CO: 76 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has A:spade: A:heart:

      fold, fold, fold, BTN raises to 3 BB, fold, Hero raises to 9 BB, BTN calls 6 BB

      Flop: (18.5 BB, 2 players) J:club: T:heart: 9:diamond:
      Hero bets 12 BB, BTN calls 12 BB

      Turn: (42.5 BB, 2 players) K:heart:
      Hero bets 20 BB, BTN calls 20 BB

      River: (82.5 BB, 2 players) 5:heart:
      Hero checks, BTN bets 68.5 BB and is all-in, fold

      BTN wins 79.5 BB

      Thanks for yr help, more cracked AAs to follow...

      Preflop: Make it larger, to 10 or 11bb

      Flop: Vs a good player i will check cos this flop completely sucks. At NL2 where players are just bad and passive in general, i think bet/fold is your best play. And I will keep firing Turn and c/c blank runouts on the River.

      Turn: Just give up the Turn, you are completely crushed here by his calling range. He is going to have AQ/KQ/sets/two pairs 80-90% of the time, and he basically folds everything that you beat.
