      Hi wheeleke! With AA (or any other hand that I'm going to play), I want to keep all of my bets and raises standard. This helps to conceal the strength of my hand and to keep the opps guessing as to the cards that I'm playing. Players that bet more with better ones and less with marginal ones are basically turning their cards face-up to an observant opponent... something that I want to avoid. Preflop, with a limper in front of me, I will make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With one limper, I will raise to 120. The flop brings possible straight draws and when it's checked to me, I will make another standard bet. With only one opp in the pot, I need to bet 1/2 pot here (173). The turn K completes a straight draw and also puts a diamond draw out there. Once again, I will make a 1/2 pot bet when the opp checks. I do not want to bet less than this due to the fact that I can be giving the opp the correct odds to try to outdraw me if they are on a draw. If I do this and the opp does outdraw me, it's my own fault that I lose the hand. The opp now check/shoves. A read on the opponent here would help, but this opp looks to have been very passive, as they have only checked or called and never raised until now. When a passive opponent makes large raises, this is something that starts setting off every alarm around me. Passive opps that bet large are almost never bluffing and they are basically for value. While I do have AA, I can't beat two pair and I can't beat a straight. Due to this, I need to muck to the shove on the turn, as I'm not pot-committed and still have a very playable stack. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
