      Hi guys new to the forum, I wanted to ask a question about the hand AA I always seem to lose with this hand more often than I win. Is there any reason for this other than bad luck. Am I better playing with a AK hand or JQ hand than AA??

      Hi, Aly1972,
      Welcome to PokerStrategy.com!

      Things are not always what they seem.
      As PmagicLchocoOballs points out, you just need to confirm this with your tracking software.

      If you don't have tracking software yet, don't worry.
      Be sure to set your poker client options to save all your hand histories so that when you do get a tracker you can see how you've progressed.

      If you look at PmagicLchocoOballs's AA graph, you'll notice some steep drops in the blue line (showdown results), but the overall tendency is upward.

      Note the red line (non-showdown results) -- he's not folding AA!
      With AA you win LOTS of small pots, and yes, you lose a few big ones, but the overall result is positive.

      Best of luck,
      --VS
