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.

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:
