    this was first hand of premier skill league

    its a nice way to start, my only question is why did you limp in with them and not make a raise initially??

      its been my experience that any raise would get me a fold, so figured I would limp and hope for a raise from someone else, then I could reraise :-)

        Hmmm... Limping with AA leaves the door open to more limpers, including those with hands that could improve with many available outs. You are lucky someone raised and were able to get to heads-up pre-flop. Otherwise you could be looking at a flop with 5-6 players, some of whom might have connected with that board. I am not a fan of limping with hands that cannot "grow up" as much as other cards like suited connectors.

        Good Luck with the rest of the month in the Premier League - wish I was there with you.

          exactly, from what I read Premier League can be harsh even from the start. NH by the way, lucky this player didn't hit runner flush or others come in with the limp and hit all sorts of scenarios. umbup:
