View Full Version : Early in 33, bad reraise with AA??

I think I usually Re-raise this all in preflop but decided that I could maximize my value by getting moosetard to put half his chips in and then push on the flop. However the extra caller and the less than stellar flop created some problems. How would you guys play this differently?

you were destined to lose your chips here, KK calls your push.
Aside from that, I re-raise more since you are in pretty early position...but it looks like you wanted a call from moosedick and thats what you got.

You have 340 in the pot already preflop, I would push here all the time. This early I want to play it safer than you did and really, really isolate with AA, not reraise to 350.

Just think about it, what would you do if you had QQ and someone reraised to 350? Itīs quite possible I would call and see if I liked the flop. QQ, JJ is so much easier to get rid of on the flop than AA.

Just move in preflop dude.

I'd do something different and still lose to KK.
