  • Pocket pairs

    I am fairly new at this game and have read most of the classroms. But still wondering when to lay down big pairs
    AA KK QQ. i always seem to hang on to long. iI know every
    game is different and I need to adjust to playing types.
    just wondering if there is a common rule.

    preflop-AA and KK, I would rarely lay down except for extreme circumstances like a supersat or final table where everybody decides to go all in and the money jump on the pay scale is big. QQ is a lot easier to lay down preflop to a lot of pressure, say, a raise and a reraise all in to you.

    postflop-it all depends...

      See the "AA Quandry" posted in the advance forum. There's a pretty good thread on this subject
