Poker Aces refers to two aces being dealt pre-flop. It’s the best possible pre-flop hand inTexas Holdem Poker. But regardless a large number of bettors end up on the wrong end when dealt these cards.

When you’re dealt a pair of Aces, you just do not fold pre-flop. You’re positioned with the greatest possible hand at this stage of the game. So how do you gamble with Poker Aces ? Do you actually go all-in? I’d say definitely no to that.

Bear in mind, you’re trying to produce as much money out of this strong position. You want to maximise the opportunity. Going all-in will simply scare most individuals into dropping out without making a wager.

If you’re in the early spot (first or 2nd to bet), you’ll place a single bet. Any person with good cards will call, with luck somebody will raise. If someone has made a raise don’t jump to re-raise or call, wait for a short while – make them think you’re considering your options and then call.

After the flop your course of action will be to eliminate anyone that might get a straight or a flush. So I would begin to raise boldly, if you are fortunate you’ll trick one player into believing that you are faking it.

If you’re in the middle or later position (one of the last to bet) you’ll watch as everyone calls and then raise. Even with you sitting with a pair of aces, if you can try to abstain from a show-down. Protect your hand by forcing the other players drop out following the flop. If you do not drive out your opponents you risk squandering your hand.
