      1st hand -


      raise more preflop... with that minraise you are inviting a lot of people in the pot and AA doesn't play well against too many oponents. raise to 1.25 preflop

      on the flop bet more - 2/3 potsize to potsize to protect against a flush and straight draw and build a pot. Your goal is to move all in as soon as possible


      2nd Hand -


      again raise more preflop!!! 4BB+1BB per limper

      bet a lot more on the flop to protect from a flushdraw, you can go broke with an overpair.

      3rd hand- nh

      good raise preflop (finally :) )

      you flopped a straight, nut flush and a royal flush draw, plus a pair - definetly worth getting your money in the middle with this monster.

      hope this helps!

      Agree with most of what exo says - protection against strong draws should be more of a potsized bet however, 2/3 pot is a normal c-bet. As played both AA hands are very difficult to play, if not impossible.

      if you see an A on the flop and people keep calling your raises you should be sure that your KK are done...

      the AA are bad raises preflop

      Hello bordzter,


      Hand #1 of OP
      Preflop: Raise to $1.25 (4+1bb) even though you have a doubled stack, come on you have Aces =) !

      Flop+Turn+River: Continuation Bet harder to 2/3 potsized! Betting with 1/2 potsized as a continuation bet is bad and -EV


      Hand #2 of OP

      Same story, bet more pre-post-turn&river!

      Hand #3 of OP

      This one is well played :)


      Best regards,
      Gerv
