Poker Aces refers to two aces being dealt pre-flop. It’s the strongest possible pre-flop hand inhold’em Poker. But despite this a great many competitors find themselves on the wrong end when given these cards.

When you’re given a set of Aces, you just don’t drop out pre-flop. You are sitting with the best possible hand at this part of the game. So how do you bet with Poker Aces ? Do you actually go all-in? I’d say absolutely no to that.

Bear in mind, you are trying to produce as much profit out of this strong position. You want to maximise the possibility. Going all-in will basically scare most individuals into dropping out without placing a wager.

If you are in the starting seat (first or 2nd to place a wager), you will make a single wager. Anyone with a decent hand will call, hopefully somebody may raise. If there has been a raise don’t spring to re-raise or call, wait for a short while – make them think you’re considering your options and then call.

Following the flop your tactic will be to eliminate anyone that could be able to get a straight or a flush. So I would start to raise aggressively, if you’re lucky you’ll trick one player into believing that you’re tricking.

If you’re in the center or later position (one of the last to place a bet) you’ll watch as everyone calls and then raise. Even with you sitting with a pair of aces, if possible try to avoid a show-down. Protect your hand by making the other players fold following the flop. If you don’t drive out your opponents you risk squandering your hand.
