Well you gotta know what position your in and the kind of players are on tble..you can raise 3 or 4 times big blind and risk getting sucked on the tble..or if u push depending on your chip size u might be able to steal the blind i like to call and see flop if you see a player bet big chances are he hit trips so get out or do what i do and push anyway and usually lose..u never can tell aces are hardest to get rid of..basically they are a cpoinflip.

The question was how to avoid losing with aces. You can't lose if you don't play. You can only lose the BB. There's only one sure-fire way to never lose your stack and that's by not getting involved in the first place. The only time aces are a coinflip postflop is if villain flops a straight flush draw. Without knowing villain's hard and assuming you put him on a reasonable range, it's usually correct to call an all in post-flop against one opponent. You're either going to be way ahead or way behind. You can't assume they have a set because they are only going to flop one a small % of the time.

Wow this is a hard one AA looks good to everyone but hard to win with frist you have to raise so you get it down to 2 or 3 players to the flop and then you have to play the flop good or bad its poker and anything can and will happen gl at the tables and in life

Play every time all-in for be sure that you remain with a few players and have higher chances of winning anyway it is all about that soft where you play......
It happened to me often but not always .

Well pocket aces are the best starting hand in poker but they can be cracked as we know, but id still go all in with pocket aces sometimes.

I don't much care for pocket aces either. However it's not possible to lose wit them every single time. Take a look at your position, the blind levels, if anyone else has already raised etc, and whom at the table your sitting wit so you kno how they play and wut to expect. Best of luck to you at playn them as I'm sure over time it will come a bit easier. *hugs*

Can you post some hands where you lost with aces? It may be more how you play them post flop would like to see some specifics to be able to help your situation but you can always shove them pre to try to cut down on the variance but I will take pocket rockets any time. FWIW in cash games I win 91% of the time and in tournaments they hold 77% of the time. If you have HEM or PT3 I encourage you to look at your lifetime results with AA you maybe surprised by the result we always remember when we get beat and recall that more than the times we win.

U can easily lose with pocket aces if u just blindly go all in because if theres nothing on the table its just a pair which is a very weak hand. Its much better to call first and see if theres another ace on the table or possibility of sequence or flush for other players then accordingly raise the bet according to the other players chips thats how i normally do it but once in a while i go all in with pocket aces but dont always get lucky doing that coz often someone gets a trio or somethin else somehow.

I usually lose more with AA than winning with it, it's happend all the time and have seen a lot of this thread.
AA sure is a great hand but it's not undefeatable hand.
Nothing to get upset for if you lose with it and play your AA correctly.

fold them, lol. I think if you look at your history you'll find you win most of the time with them. Even an 80% winner can lose a few in row, it happens.

Yea I bet. If someone is trying to get some help with a problem. Even if its losing to pocket aces. Why dont you try and give some suggestions instead of a smart ass remark. Your not helping new people to poker or to this forum. I would rather not even post a comment unless its helpfull.

You cannot avoid that, it simply happens from time to time, but every series has its stop.
As in roulette there are situations when there is the same colour 13-15 times in a row,
But here you have at least some edge by playing the best starting hand
