      I'm in a ring game .05/.10 and get dealt AK. I'm on the SB and one person raises to .30, another one cals. The SSS guide tells me: go all-in, so I go all in (around 1.90) and the other two guys call. On the flop: AAA. The SSS guide tells you to get out as quickly as possible when you're above 25 BBs, but I always stay untill the BB to get the rake bonuses. I get dealt AA. One person raises and I call. On the flop AQQ and another A on the turn.

      I don't believe I'll be that lucky in a very long time:)

      Did you just limp shove Aces?

      I rly hope you had a good reason for that, this shouldn't be a standard move with shortstack ( and I would guess mansion or Titan right? ;o)

      Especially not for SSS, although almost 26 bb. I hope you were waiting for bb then leaving?

      Yeah. That's because it already happened two times on that table that they all folded to me when I had KK on the BB.

      Just had AA, AK and AA in a row. Total profit: -$3

      Not everything is wonderful.

      It was on Full Tilt.

      Well you can definitely do it if there are 2 or more 20+ PFR guys.



      But unless you know this is the case NEVER LIMP ACES!
      If you are unlucky you will get caught up in a multiway pot (you don't want that to happen) and check-raise is even scarier than just raise even with SSS.

      Yeah, I always do that because you'll get a lot of bonus points when there are big pots and you don't have to put anything in the pot. Sometimes I get good hands as AA, KK, QQ or AK and than I just play them.

      Wow, pretty awesome, but what was CO thinking? He would be beaten by anyone holding an Ace or King, on the turn by any queen and on the river by any 7 or flush.
