      Nope you didn't, why do you think someone will raise here? So you do limp/miniraise - it's obvious AA, especialy from shortstack with tight image, so you are easy to read. Raise/push.

      never limp with AA when playing SSS. you won the hand and think it was a good move but if 4 players limped also and one of them had 27 of hearts in his hand and crack your Aces you would have thought that limping with aces is not such a good move. don't slow play big hands pre-flop :)

      Hello Calin1990,

      People fall for this trap only Once and since everyone knows the limp/3bet move (even fish) that it is mostly KK+, your move is pretty transparant.

      So I agree with Bogdan & Aimboy about just raising it up with Aces, it's the best hand in Hold'em so you want to maximum out of your opponents. People on lower limits are simply too passive to rely on them.

      You also run the risk of getting to see a multiway limped pot which increases the risk of getting a suckout

      Best regards,

      Gerv

      Been playing poker a while b4 i register here.

      I lose to limping AA only 3 times since i started playing poker.

      However, i won againts limping AA many times. And it pay me off very WELL.


      Example for today.

      HERO BB with Q6
      Limper with AA just call the BB.

      FLOP Q62...u know the rest...

      Yes but we are talking about Hero limping with Aces, not villain

      Also you need a bit more than 100+ samples of the same exact Villain limping Aces and you on BB scenario and add up all the losses & profits from it. I think at best you get to break-even
