Poker Aces – how to bet them

August 1st, 2012 by Averie Leave a reply »

Poker Aces refers to two aces being dealt before theflop. It is the best attainable before theflop hand inhold’em Poker. But despite this many competitors end up on the losing end when given this hand.

When you are given a set of Aces, you just do not fold pre-flop. You’re sitting with the greatest possible hand at this stage of the game. So how do you gamble with Poker Aces ? Do you simply go all-in? I’d say absolutely no to that.

Keep in mind, you’re trying to generate as much money out of this strong position. You will want to maximise the possibility. Going all-in will merely drive most players into folding and not putting a wager.

If you are in the initial spot (first or 2nd to bet), you will lay a single wager. Anyone with a decent hand will call, hopefully someone will raise. If someone has made a raise don’t spring to re-raise or call, pause for a short while – make them think you’re considering your options and then call.

Following the flop your strategy will be to get rid of anyone that might be able to get a straight or a flush. So I would start to raise boldly, if you are fortunate you’ll fool one player into thinking that you’re tricking.

If you are in the middle or later seat (near the last to place a bet) you will observe as everybody calls and then raise. Even with you holding a pair of aces, if you can try to avert a show-down. Protect your hand by forcing others to fold after the flop. If you do not force out your competitors you chance losing your hand.
