Poker Aces – how-to wager them

Poker Aces refers to two aces being dealt before theflop. It is the strongest possible before theflop hand inhold’em Poker. But regardless a large number of players find themselves on the wrong end when given this hand.

When you are given a set of Aces, you just do not fold pre-flop. You are positioned with the best achievable hand at this stage of the game. So how do you bet with Poker Aces ? Do you basically go all-in? I’d say no to that.

Keep in mind, you are looking to generate as much money out of this strong position. You want to maximize the possibility. Going all-in will merely drive most gamblers into folding and not putting a bet.

If you’re in the starting spot (first or 2nd to bet), you’ll lay a single bet. Anyone with decent cards will call, with hope someone may raise. If someone has made a raise do not jump to re-raise or call, wait for a small bit – make them think you’re considering your options and then call.

After the flop your tactic will be to eliminate anybody that might get a straight or a flush. So I would start to raise boldly, if you’re fortunate you’ll fool one player into believing that you’re bluffing.

If you are in the middle or late position (one of the last to place a bet) you will observe as every player calls and then raise. Even though you’re holding a pair of aces, if possible try to avert a show-down. Defend your hand by forcing others to drop out following the flop. If you do not abolish your competitors you risk losing your hand.
