  • Slow playing AA

    Hi Guys, I was wondering if I should have played his hand any differently? I allowed the villan to draw out on me. Is pushing on the flop a better option considering the dangerous board and his range? The small bet on the flop was an attempt to look weak and try and induce him to push over me with a T or J Thanks in advance

    It'll depend on the opps and reads on them as to how I'll play AA. If there are a number of calling stations, then I would not want to be slowplaying.

    Preflop, you min-raised, I'd have made a larger raise (to about 3X their bet).

    On the flop, you need to make a value bet. With only the same amount of chips behind that are already in the pot, I'm shipping them here. With a small bet like 150, you give the opp odds to draw at you. If you would have raised more preflop, then it makes the flop shove a much easier decision.

      Ship it preflop

      Ship the flop. You have a pot sized bet - the min bet is awful (sorry). Make people pay for draws. This board is perfect for that because it hits so much of villains range.

      Slow playing your AA which is now only a one pair hand post flop is a recipe for disaster on such a wet board

        Thanks guys. I figured the min bet on the flop was bad as soon as I did it
