Busted like 3 times with pocket A. First thing to do is if you are full stacked, go ahead and bet 4xBB on pre-flop early position and 4xBB + addtl calls/raise. You never limp in with AA. If you do, the straight/flush will get you everytime, it did me.

If you are short stacked, PUSH.

Why don't I listen to myself. The name of the game in poker is agressive and patience. Only play with the right hand and play close attention to the board.
