Poker Aces – learning to wager them

Friday, 25. January 2013

Poker Aces references two aces being dealt pre-flop. It is the strongest possible before theflop hand inholdem Poker. But despite this many bettors end up on the wrong end when given this hand.

When you are dealt a set of Aces, you just don’t fold before theflop. You’re sitting with the best possible hand at this stage of the game. So how do you bet with Poker Aces ? Do you basically go all-in? I’d say absolutely no to that.

Remember, you are trying to acquire as much money from this strong position. You will want to maximize the possibility. Going all-in will actually scare most competitors into folding and not putting a wager.

If you’re in the early seat (1st or 2nd to actually bet), you will lay a single wager. Anybody with a decent hand will call, with luck a person 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.

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

If you’re in the middle or late spot (one of the last to place a bet) you’ll watch as every player calls and then raise. Even though you are holding a pair of aces, if possible try to avoid a show-down. Defend your hand by forcing others to fold after the flop. If you do not abolish your adversaries you risk squandering your hand.
