Poker Aces - how to play them


Poker Aces refers to two aces dealt pre-flop. It is the strongest possible pre-flop hand in Texas Holdem Poker. But despite this many players find themselves on the losing end when dealt this hand.

After the flop your strategy will be to eliminate anyone that could get a straight or a flush. So I would begin to raise aggressively, if you're lucky you'll trick one player into believing that you're bluffing.

If you're in the middle or late position (one of the last to bet) you'll watch as everyone calls and then raise. Even though you're sitting with a pair of aces, if possible try to avoid a show-down. Protect your hand by forcing others to fold after the flop. If you don't drive out your opponents you risk losing your hand.

Here are a few things to remember of when betting on poker aces:

Firstly, you have the early advantage over every other player - use it to maximise your profit...
