Poker Aces refers to two aces being dealt pre-flop. It is the best possible before theflop hand inhold’em Poker. But regardless a large number of competitors find themselves on the wrong end when dealt these cards.

When you are given a pair of Aces, you just don’t fold pre-flop. You’re positioned with the best possible hand at this part of the round. So how do you wager with Poker Aces ? Do you actually go all-in? I would say absolutely no to that.

Bear in mind, you are trying to earn as much profit out of this strong position. You will want to maximise the opportunity. Going all-in will merely drive most competitors into folding before putting a wager.

If you are in the starting position (1st or 2nd to place a bet), you’ll lay a single wager. Anyone with a decent hand will call, hopefully a player will raise. If there has been a raise do not jump to re-raise or call, pause for a small bit – make them think you’re considering your options and then call.

After the flop your strategy will be to eliminate anyone that might be able to get a straight or a flush. So I would begin to raise boldly, if you are fortunate you’ll trick 1 player into thinking that you are tricking.

If you’re in the middle or later spot (one of the last to place a wager) you will watch as every player calls and then raise. Even though you’re holding a pair of aces, if possible try to abstain from a show-down. Defend your hand by forcing the other players drop out after the flop. If you don’t drive out your competition you chance losing your hand.
