It depends on my mood

Ideally you dont want to make plays on how you feel unless you are playing just for fun which is fair enough Smiley

I played depending on my mood when I first started playing, and it wasn't to great.
When I get lucky I would win huge amounts because no one took me serious lol, and my good hands payed off, but in the long run it was a bad idea.
Then i started learning the game and, for good or for worse I can justify all my plays.
I can play on mood if I am playing with friends just for fun, but even then I mixed it with "normal" play, because I just like the game to much to just play based on mood.

I'm a new poker player and I would like to know what is your best way to play pocket aces in poker.
In my small experience, most of the time when I played slow, I lost. And when I played aggressive, I won, but a small pot.
What are your opinions?

For a newbie to poker you answered your own question which is good. When you play slow you are giving more players the chance to get in the hand with half assed hands like 7-9 suited etc etc Each player in the hand reduces your chances of winning the hand obviously so when you play aggressive with them you are doing yourself a favor. A very good poker player once told me he would prefer AK than aces his reason was you know where you stand with AK and it is easy to put down when needed. AA is another story isn't it? lol. Over all i think you are best with playing how you feel like but imo your doing it right! 


AK is my best hand. in this hand you can get also straight, and if its suited I can get a flash.
About AA... Hmmm.. I think its a real killer hand, but you can lose all your chips with it.

there is no simple answer mate but you know AA is the best hand in poker you will be ahead of your opponents at least 60%
so when you are dealt aces you should think about how you can get the max value from them
if you don't have a good experience never slow play them , but when you are good slow playing is good especially in tourneys when you have 20 BBs or less

the best way to play pocket aces in poker is just act like you don't have it. for example like you just call and check. let other players be aggresive and when the river come go all in and enjoy your winning.

That sounds like a great way of winning a lot of small pots and losing a lot of big ones.

I also think its the worst way to act.
The less people see the flop- the more chances to win the hand.
If all the 9 players calls, the odds you win the hand with AA are very very low.

That is a nice hand and actually my favorite in spades. There is no doubt it is a killer hand for both for and against. I have lost more with that hand than any other. My play for awhile has been bet very big at each road depending what flops and that seems to be helping. If others have decent hands the pressure is on them to fold. Many can't fold jj qq kk pre flop so it works and narrows the hands you will be against.
