Poker Aces – the right way to wager them

[ English ]

Poker Aces refers to two aces being dealt before theflop. It is the best possible before theflop hand inhold’em Poker. But regardless a great many gamblers end up on the losing end when dealt these cards.

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

Always remember, you’re looking to generate as much profit out of this strong position. You want to maximise the possibility. Going all-in will merely scare most gamblers into folding and not making a wager.

If you are in the starting seat (1st or 2nd to place a wager), you’ll lay a single bet. Any person with a good hand will call, with hope someone may raise. If there has been a raise don’t spring to re-raise or call, pause for a small bit – make them think you’re considering your options and then call.

Following the flop your plan will be to eliminate any player that could be able to get a straight or a flush. So I would start to raise boldly, if you’re lucky you’ll trick one player into thinking that you are faking it.

If you are in the middle or later seat (one of the last to cast your bet) you’ll observe as everyone calls and then raise. Even though you’re holding a pair of aces, if possible try to avert a show-down. Protect your hand by forcing the other players fold following the flop. If you do not get rid of your competitors you chance squandering your hand.
