Poker Aces – the right way to wager them

[ English | Deutsch | Español | Français | Italiano ]

Poker Aces references two aces dealt pre-flop. It’s the strongest possible pre-flop hand inTexas Holdem Poker. But regardless a great many players find themselves on the wrong end when given this hand.

When you’re dealt a pair of Aces, you just don’t drop out before theflop. You’re sitting with the best achievable hand at this part of the game. So how do you wager with Poker Aces ? Do you basically go all-in? I’d say definitely no to that.

Bear in mind, you are trying to acquire as much money out of this strong position. You want to maximise the possibility. Going all-in will merely drive most competitors into dropping out before laying a wager.

If you’re in the early spot (1st or 2nd to wager), you will place a single bet. Anyone with a decent hand will call, with hope someone may raise. If there has been a raise do not spring to re-raise or call, wait for a small bit – make them think you’re considering your options and then call.

Following 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 lucky you’ll trick one player into believing that you are bluffing.

If you’re in the middle or late position (one of the last to wager) you’ll watch as everyone calls and then raise. Even with you holding a pair of aces, if possible try to avoid a show-down. Protect your hand by making the other players fold following the flop. If you don’t drive out your adversaries you risk losing your hand.
