    Another one that you did get unlucky.. but that's a real scary board for aces. There are flush and straight draws that an opp could easily have, along with a set.

    Again, you want to bet the AA, but don't blindly push unless you are certain that you have the best hand.... which with this board could easily not be the case.

    Pairs, suited connectors, suited A or K or suited 1-gap cards are well within the opponents range... and those are the ones that can beat you.

      Well again, the preflop play is solid and I think it's easily going to be profitable to commit post flop with a stack to pot ratio this low.

      Now that being said, just shoving for over 2 times the size of the pot is unlikely to be the best way to maximize value. Don't play scared.

      There's nothing really wrong in either of the 2 AA hands except maybe the 2+ pot sized flop shove in this one. Both spots are profitable to commit against all but super-nits. But you're not giving any reads, you're just playing your cards it seems like... so start by paying attention to your opponents, and ranging them. That'll help get you on the right track.
