      I've developed a leak with AA: I'm slowplaying it often when the action goes heads up, to try and trap my opponent, and it is always blowing up in my face.

      How often are people flatting 3bets with AA, in order to get more value from smaller pp and whatnot?

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A, A.
      5 folds, Hero raises to $2.00, BU raises to $5.50, 2 folds, Hero calls $3.50.

      Flop: ($11.75) 5, 2, 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $5.00, BU raises to $12.00, Hero raises to $48.10, BU calls $32.50(All-In).

      Turn: ($104.35) 6 (0 players)
      BU gets uncalled bet back.

      River: ($104.35) 4 (0 players)
      BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $71.85.

      Results follow:

      BU shows three of a kind, fives(Kc 5s).
      Hero shows two pairs, aces and fives(Ad As).

      BU wins with three of a kind, fives(Kc 5s).

      I prefer flatting pf AA ip.
      Oop it is a littlebit difficult, since players might go on pot control and you could see a lot of ugly flops, where you still have to stack off, since usually villain wot put you on aces
      On that board I think c/r is a little better than lead out/shove, since if you lead out then I´d expect him to fold most of his Ax hands and air hands and would not bluffraise enough times to make it profitable
