      Don't you thing this is a too extensive question? It would take days to answer...

      I think you should start by posting that AA** hands on the evaluation forum...

      You could almost write a book about playing aces, if you want to cover all kinds of spots and situations.

      So to begin, just post some AAxx hands to hand analyzing area.

      In general, if you can 3bet/4bet/5bet AAxx so that you get SPR (stack to pot ratio) 1 on flop, you can shove any flop against one opponent and it's 100% quaranteed profitable in the long run. Also, if you can get your stack in preflop with any AAxx it's usually a good thing. If you are deep or it's going to be multiway pot and there are some 4bets and 5 bets already you should think it little more.

      And a thumb rule: don't 3bet just aces, and generally don't 3bet aces oop unless you know what you are doing.

      I will focus on AAxx play with my series, so be sure to look out for it.

      But like Kyyberi said, to cover everything is impossible. Just post the hands, and look what the comments recommend
